In recognition and thanks for invaluable donor support, the NAC Orchestra and NAC Dance grants insider access to donors to audit a working rehearsal in Southam Hall. Often, an artist or member of the artistic team gives insights into the creative process and invites questions from donors. Seating is limited.

Get out your glitter - Southam Hall gets drop-dead thorgeous when the NAC Orchestra transforms into the NAC Thorchestra! From Mozart to Madonna, Bach to Beyonce, Florence Price to Lady Gaga and more, c’mon and vogue with us in a NACO concert like you’ve never seen and fall crazy in love with the drag and orchestral arts in this all-ages concert!

Style, comedy and serious classical chops: that’s what the “Queen of Classical Music” Thorgy Thor brings to Southam Hall when she and conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser join the NAC Orchestra for an evening of virtuoso violin playing, hilarious theatrics and sheer fabulosity!
