Bluegrass Masters Weekend Cancelled
July 12, 2020 - Sorry, folks -- but given our uncertain situation with the pandemic, we've had to make the hard decision to cancel Bluegrass Masters Weekend at Lutsen Resort this November. We will miss you and hope to see you in November 2021!
Programming Update
Programming Update
May 05, 2020 - To all of our music-loving friends:

As have so many arts organizations across our region, state, and country, NSMA has unfortunately had to cancel our spring and early summer 2020 events (April through July). Currently we have one project per month penciled in from the end of August through December. We will keep you posted about the feasibility of programming as we know more down the road. Our bottom line is that we’re committed to helping keep people in Cook County safe and healthy, while meeting your needs for great musical programming as we’re able.

Be sure to check back to this page, where I have been posting links to musical entertainment and education that you can engage with from the comfort of home.

Promising you great, healing, celebratory live events when we can meet again…

For the love of music,
Kate and the NSMA Board
Instrument Drive for ISD 166 Band
Instrument Drive for ISD 166 Band
February 02, 2020 -

Do you have a used band instrument that needs a home? Would you like to make a donation to help repair or buy used instruments for students in need? 

The North Shore Music Association (NSMA) is sponsoring a donation drive to get instruments into the hands of ISD 166 band students. To strengthen music education and learning opportunities in our community, our goal is to see that every child who needs one has access to an instrument for use at school and practice at home. 

Please contact NSMA Director Kate Fitzgerald for details on how to donate: 218-387-1272 or music@boreal.org.
