Join our exciting community celebration of music and recognition.
RISE will recognize the perseverance and innovations of your Symphony from the past year. Your NHSO's virtual performances and unconventional in-person concerts are winning over new audiences and engaging our community in ways that were unimaginable a year ago. Our virtual education programs in 2020 are now reaching students in nearly every corner of the globe, offering fresh access to cutting-edge music education content.
Guests are able to choose the fully virtual, or hybrid attendance options. Please note that our hybrid option refers to the combination of our virtual program (enjoyed from home) with an event meal that is either delivered to you or picked up in advance. We prioritize health and safety, following local and national safety guidelines.
Festivities will include:
- World Premiere of RISE, by NHSO Young Composer graduate Anton Kot
- Original Dance choreographed by Nikki Claxton and performed by Jah'lil Jeffries
- Original Music by Wilbur Cross High School students and the NHSO Harmony Quartet
- A Musical Offering from soprano Harolyn Blackwell
- Silent Auction
- Virtual Cocktail hour hosted by Broadway performer Linedy Genao
- Dinner To-Go available from The WoodWinds
- A Special Message from Senator Richard Blumenthal
