Concert Notes

The NSS concludes our Spring season with an exciting collaboration with area saxophonist Howard Burns. Burns joins us to present a live performance of the 1960 Stan Getz album "Focus," featuring a suite composed specifically for Getz by Eddie Sauter. A noted example of "third stream" music, Focus beautifully blends classical and jazz elements into a unique sound that will thrill listeners.

NOTE: NSS concerts typically last around two hours, including a 15-minute intermission.
