The Nassau Music Society (NMS) stands proudly on its legacy and looks to the future with excitement and optimism.
NMS is a non-profit, charitable organisation, and also a community made up of our audiences, Members, Sponsors , and Students , all connected by a shared passion for music and its transformative power. Despite challenges faced by arts organisations across the world we seek to remain relevant and vibrant in our presentation of world class music events and our commitment to nurturing the next generation of musical talent.
Musical Excellence. The NMS has promoted musical excellence since its inception. The list of outstanding past performers who have graced our local stages is too long to list here but standout concerts include: The English Chamber Orchestra, Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow
Soloists, The Ensemble Du Monde Orchestra, Natalie Gutman, The Harlem Boys Choir as well as several winners of the prestigious Santander International Piano Competition.
Community & Outreach. Programs for children and students have long been part of NMS’s commitment to the community. Where possible, our visiting artists offer free masterclasses to local
students and, since last season, an outstanding student performer opens each of our concerts. NMS has also been consistent in awarding scholarships and grants to local students. As we move into our next 50 years it is our goal to be a platform for the depth of musical talent that exists in the Bahamas.
We can’t do it without you. We are ever grateful for the generosity of corporate sponsors, private donors, membership subscribers, advertisers and even attendees at our concerts and events. You are what make our annual concert series, education and outreach efforts possible. Thank you!
