Mission Statement

The National String Symphonia strives to preserve, promote, and present string orchestra music through a diverse array of concert performances, educational workshops, and innovative programming in the Greater Washington, DC area and beyond. Artistic Vision Statement: The National String Symphonia is committed to presenting music at the highest levels of musicianship and artistry. Vision Statement: The National String Symphonia envisions a world in which art music is a meaningful part of the shared experience of a universal community.

Description

Founded in 2013, the National String Symphonia is a fully professional symphonic string orchestra. Our mission is to preserve, promote, and present string orchestra music. Many ensembles do not program this repertoire for a variety of reasons, including its relative obscurity and its musical complexity as well as basic challenges in obtaining performance materials.

The universality of the music and its makers is reflected in the makeup of the NSS. Our members represent a wide age range, hail from all over the world, and bring a variety of experience to our organization.

The NSS continues to grow rapidly. While COVID-19 forced the cancellation of our concerts in 2020, we are back with a full concert line up in 2021-2022. We have performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, as well as other venues in Baltimore, Silver Spring, Germantown, and Frederick, MD.

The NSS is excited to partner with New Spire Arts to perform concerts regularly in their new performing space. New Spire Arts is located on W Patrick Street in Frederick, MD, and we are delighted to perform there. This intimate performing space will be a great fit for us, and we hope to see you there for our future concerts.

We feel your involvement will enrich the orchestra even more!
