North State Symphony offers virtual performances this season

The North State Symphony is reaching out for patrons to join with memberships instead of season tickets this year, due to the impacts of Covid-19 on public performances.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA - The North State Symphony's 20th anniversary season is titled, "Rediscover." It will be far different than previous seasons, according to Symphony conductor Scott Seaton. The maestro sat down with Action News Now anchor Linda Watkins Bennett on Thursday to share more about this unusual season of classical music listening experiences.

The 2020-21 season kicks off next week, after months of challenges and uncertainty. The conductor, however, is excited about how the season has shifted to virtual offerings.

A pre-concert talk about Mozart & More will be offered on the North State Symphony YouTube channel on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 7:00 p.m.  The Mozart & More concert will be on the YouTube channel and on Public Access television on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020.

Continuing through April of 2021, the North State Symphony will share six all-new monthly concert experiences. Performances will feature repertoire for smaller ensembles, chosen and performed by conductor Scott Seaton and selected symphony musicians. Concerts will air Thursday evenings both online and on public access television. Each month will also feature additional virtual music, interviews, and conversations across the artistic spectrum, including:

• Pre-concert talks
• Watch parties of past concerts
• Interviews with NSS musicians from the "Musician Accents" series
• "Just Ask!" with special guest artists from the North State and beyond
• A new series called "Cracking the Score" where Maestro Seaton and guests dig into the great works of the classical music canon

The Symphony has changed from selling subscriptions to memberships this season. Instead of purchasing individual concert tickets, you can become a member, which will help sustain the North State Symphony through these challenging times.

NSS Members will also get exclusive access to member-only online content, including unique musical performances, interviews, special behind-the-scenes discussions with the Maestro and guests, and more!
