Special Support

Learning in Concert program support provided by Concerts at the Point for Fall River, Westport, and Tiverton elementary schools and by Up with School Arts for Little Compton and Middletown elementary schools. Education program support provided in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council as well grants from the following Local Cultural Councils, which are local agencies supported by the MCC, a state agency: Acushnet, Dighton, Fairhaven, Fall River, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Rochester, and Westport.

Your donations make possible our innovative educational programs.

Our educational programs serve over 25,000 children a year, and we are recognized nationally for our innovative approach and high impact. We all know of the documented benefits of children learning music, and we firmly believe that by introducing classical music to a new generation of students through our programs, we are helping them to make critical connections between music and their everyday lives, making their NBSO experience enriching on multiple levels.
