About Outreach Programs: For symphony orchestras to survive and thrive, musicians need to be advocates for classical music in all aspects of life, especially by being active and present in their communities. During their summer fellowship, National Repertory Orchestra musicians take part in the NRO’s Education and Community Engagement Program, which prepares the musicians for an active role in the communities they will be serving, and, more importantly, provides free musical events for youth, the general community, and those who are underserved in Summit County.
What a beautiful summer it is here in Summit County and the NRO is already half way through the concert season! Please come visit us this week for some amazing performances.
