Showtime! is a concert series which provides opportunity for students to get up close and personal with professional musicians in the intimate setting of our performance space at NMC. Classes will develop active listening skills, audience etiquette and an appreciation for live music all while enhancing classroom learning through curriculum-connected shows that are interactive. These are not “kiddie concerts” but rather a personal and adapted version of the musician’s own repertoire, performed for a student audience.
