Coming Up! Virtual Meet the Instruments Series!
Join the NEP and the Boston Children’s Museum for our annual Meet the Instruments series–virtually!
In this three-part series, kids learn about the different families of musical instruments and how those instruments fit together to make an orchestra. Every week they will be introduced to a new family of instruments, strings, brass, and woodwinds, as the talented musicians from NEP share their instruments and their passion for making music.
Dec. 1 – Brass Family!
Dec. 8 – Wind Family!
To take part in this series, visit the Boston Children’s Museum YouTube!

Jump into the music and join NEP Concertmaster Dani Maddon and Composer-in-Residence Eric Nathan as they chat with the composer about her works “Nightscape” and “Playtime” and learn about the inspiration for the works, the various performance techniques each piece requires, and the overall composition process.
This performance was part of the Virtual Boston New Music festival, a two-week showcase of Boston’s leading new music ensembles. This year’s virtual festival is available both to the Boston community and audiences around the world. Learn more here.
