National Concerts is committed to providing unique and exciting performances for both choral and instrumental ensembles. Curated by our Artistic Directors within a thematic narrative, our imaginative collaborations may include multimedia projection, dynamic lighting, creative staging, and world premieres with Composers-in-residence.
An experience as thrilling for the audience as it is for our performers. Join us!
Take the stage with us.
We not only offer, but encourage collaboration across artistic passions. Come to us with your ideas! Whether it be multimedia projection, modern dance, creative staging, or lighting design, we believe strongly that collaboration in this manner creates greater opportunity and enhances the experience for audience and performers alike.
Too often, financial decisions compromise the integrity of the performance, and limit the artistic ability of the guest conductors, composers, or collaborating artists. At National Concerts we shift the creative control to our guest conductors. Our artistic process safeguards a positive experience for the performers, and a lasting impression for the audience.
We support new music while celebrating historical gems that continue to resonate with today’s audience. Commissions by National Concerts provide our guest conductors and participating ensembles the exciting opportunity of performing a premiere with our Composers-in-Residence.
Past commissions include:
Jocelyn Hagen (SATB Youth + hand percussion): One Step
Jim Papoulis (SATB): As One
Richard Burchard (SSATB + wind ensemble): DREAMCATCHER
Artistic Advisory Board

The individuals are dedicated professionals in the community who will generate important discussions and provide artistic guidance.
