Strings in the Wild: Where the Wild Strings Are

Let the wild rumpus start! The NSS's first "Strings in the Wild" performance will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2022 in downtown Frederick, Maryland as part of Frederick's traditional First Saturday activities. This will be a fantastic opportunity to experience the excitement of string orchestra music outside the confines of its natural habitat - "out in the wild", so to speak. Just walk up and listen, no charge!
