Northwood High orchestra entertains, educates young musicians at Segerstrom Hall


The Northwood High School Chamber Orchestra was recently invited to perform for elementary-age kids and their families during a pair of interactive shows at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

NHS Chamber Orchestra 1Family Musical Mornings is an ongoing concert series at the hall that introduces young audiences to the Pacific Symphony. The Northwood musicians were on the bill for two shows there on Saturday, Oct. 25, participating during the Music Carnival portion of the program.

Not only did they play music for hundreds of elementary students, members of the Northwood High orchestra also demonstrated different styles and techniques, and they gave more than 50 young maestros an opportunity to conduct, according to Ben Case, one of NHS’s instrumental music directors.

“It was truly a great experience all around,” Case told the NewsFlash.
