Orchestra Look-In: NSO! Inside the Music

National Symphony Orchestra Young People's Concert

Grades 3–6, Concert Hall (50 Minutes), March 19–22, 2018
NOTE: Fairfax County fourth grade students will attend additional NSO Young People’s Concerts in October and March as part of a countywide project


The NSO continues in the spirit of a series of Young People’s Concerts made popular by Leonard Bernstein at Carnegie Hall. Michael Butterman conducts this delightful performance that explores all of the pieces that come together to create an orchestra, and demonstrates that it can be accessible to everyone. The concert includes well-known works by Brahms, Copland, and Tchaikovsky, and introduces students to Jessie Montgomery, a living composer keeping the orchestra music alive and vibrant. The NSO along with Conductor Michael Butterman and NSO Assistant Principal 2nd Violinist Marissa Regni are joined onstage by an unexpected guest who is just as ecstatic about the orchestra as they are.
