The National Symphony Orchestra conducts a Summer Music Institute in Washington, D.C every year. We urge music teachers to watch our website for the spring announcement of 2015 NSO Summer Institute applications and have their students apply to attend this unique summer music institute offering. Juhwan Seo, celloist and a senior at Lake Oswego High School in Lake Oswego, and Emily Wu, violinist and sophomore at Westview High School in Portland, were Oregon’s two institute participants the summer of 2014.
