NMS Premier Ensembles
Our four NMS Premier Ensembles — Jazz, String, Wind, and Dance — offer a unique opportunity for advanced students to perform at the highest level while serving the NMS community.
Following a rigorous audition process, students chosen for these tuition-free ensembles explore their artistry together through regular coachings and performances. The ensembles are coached by NMS faculty members:
- Premier Jazz Ensemble: Jeff Fuller
- Premier String Ensemble: Jody Rowitsch
- Premier Wind Ensemble: Elaine Thoma
- Premier Dance Company: Hanan Hameen
Through their many performances in the community, including virtual concerts and recitals, the students in our Premier Ensembles serve as ambassadors for NMS.
