Inside the Music

Inside the Music

Our Inside the Music programs provide an intimate and interactive view into the world of classical music and symphony musicians. Throughout the concert season, NWS Fellows prepare and host a series of hour-long mini-seminars exploring an array of topics of their choosing, such as orchestral music history, professional instrumental auditions, and classical music appreciation. Audience members are encouraged to participate by asking questions and taking part in post-performance discussions. The cost is free, however tickets are required.  Specific information on topics will be posted online as it becomes available.
