Greetings NSO fans! Our 2011-2012 season has been off to a busy and fantastic start. Since our last post, we've kicked off our season with a gala ball, performed two classical programs, one Pops show with our new Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke, and a week of Young People's Concerts for area school students. Next month sees the return of Christoph Eschenbach to our podium—and speaking of Maestro Eschenbach, we were thrilled to start the season with the announcement that he has extended his contract with us. We also got the great news that we will be getting a new organ in our concert hall!
All in all it's been a great way to spend our 80th birthday—but there's more exciting news as well. In addition to this blog and the Facebook page that you know and love, there's a new way to get behind-the-scenes looks at the NSO. We've created a Tumblr page!
If you're unfamiliar with Tumblr, think Twitter-meets-blogging. The posts are short and sweet, and include links, photos, videos, quotes and more. No membership or sign-up is required, and each post is easier than ever to share with your friends. Our blog will still be the home of in-depth writing, slide shows and more—and we'll link blog posts to our Tumblr page to make things easy.
So follow this link to check out our new Tumblr page- and let us know what you think in the comments here. If you're on Facebook, you can also read more about us there. Now it's easier than ever to stay in tune with the NSO!
