About the NSS

The National String Symphonia produces a rich variety of music and educational programs. But, did you know that ticket revenue covers less than ten percent of the NSS’s production costs? We count on continued support from throughout our community to advance our important work. Balancing our budget is always a considerable challenge, and one that can only be achieved through the generous support of people like you.

When you support the National String Symphonia, you are not only making a sound investment in our concerts, you are also supporting our broader mission to preserve, promote, and present string orchestra music. Thank you for helping make the NSS – and our community – a success!
