The Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony will perform five concerts during its 2021-22 season and will be part of the annual Christmas Gala, according to musical director Dr. Douglas Bakenhus. 

The concerts will feature Northwestern faculty, alumni and top NSU music students and will be held in Magale Recital Hall. Tickets are $15 per concert and free for Northwestern State, BPCC@NSU and Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts students. Memberships to the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Society start at $50 with higher sponsorship levels providing additional benefits.

“Now in its 56th season, the Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony is a core component of the cultural fabric of our community,” said Ford, a long-time supporter of the Symphony Society and School of Creative and Performing Arts at NSU. “Our orchestra string section is comparable in size and quality to much larger universities and this is attributed to the scholarship support provided by ‘Friends-of-the-Symphony’ who buy season tickets and/or ads in our concert program.  Those who support the Symphony are helping to educate students and enrich our community.”
