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.

Reflecting on our 5th season, the NSS continues to grow rapidly. Our last season featured our first concerts in Baltimore, another world premiere, and our Kennedy Center debut. Our 6th season will feature yet another world premiere as well as our most expanded season yet.

The NSS is excited to partner with New Spire Arts to perform in their new performing space. New Spire Stages will open in the spring on Patrick Street in Frederick, MD and we are delighted to be among the first groups to perform there. This intimate performing space will be a great fit for us and we hope to see you there on March 1.

We feel your involvement will enrich the orchestra even more!
