The story of one family's journey north during the Great Migration starts one summer with a little girl in South Carolina finding a rope under a tree. She has no idea, however, that the rope will become a compelling part of her family's history. This world premiere NSO Family Concert features Education Artist-in-Residence Jacqueline Woodson reading This Is the Rope onstage, along with new music played by the NSO and conducted by Kyle Dickson and Quinn Mason.
