Howard County, here we come!

The NSS is excited to announce that the Symphonia is going to be playing two informances in Columbia this season. Both events will take place at Christ Episcopal Church on Oakland Mills Road. Tickets for the November informance are on sale now and we hope to see you there!

Born into a musical family in Baltimore, Anthony C. Shields started playing the violin at age eight. Throughout the early years of developing his craft, he studied with a number of noted teachers in Maryland including Rhadi Santos, Linda Molina, and Matthew Horowitz-Lee at Peabody Conservatory. Anthony received his Bachelors in Music Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory, where he studied with Akemi Takayama, Concertmaster of the Roanoke Symphony, and Oleg Rylatko, Concertmaster of the Washington Opera.
