Masterclass Series

We are happy to announce our first official community engagement partner, DC Concert Orchestra Society (DCCOS)!

In 2016, NOW and DC Concert Orchestra Society (DCCOS) joined to undertake a pilot in which the professional musicians of NOW provided chamber music masterclasses to DCCOS’s chamber music ensembles. This year, we are happy to embark on a new, season-long relationship offering masterclasses, performance opportunities and discounted tickets to the members of the DCCOS.

This partnership is a part of our ongoing commitment to building a community inclusive of all who love art.
