Cancellation & Refund Policy >

The Porch is excited to continue its partnership with the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra (NPO), a volunteer community orchestra that brings free performances to a wide variety of audiences throughout the year.

In this special one-day workshop, we'll listen to excerpts from a piece of classical music that will be performed by the NPO in an upcoming concert (3/3 and 3/5, details below). The instructor will guide you as you write sensory and emotional responses to the music. At the end, you'll have the option to share these responses to be printed and displayed at the NPO concert venues. Designed for listeners and writers of all levels. No prior knowledge of classical music required!
