National Symphony Orchestra @ The Kennedy Center


The National Symphony Orchestra's 84th season is its fifth under the leadership of Music Director Christoph Eschenbach, who also serves as the Music Director of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Founded in 1931 and an affiliate company of the Kennedy Center since 1986, the Orchestra has maintained its commitment to artistic excellence and music education. The Orchestra numbers 96 musicians, and two librarians, presenting a year-long season of approximately 150 concerts each year. These include classical subscription series, pops concerts, summer performances at Wolf Trap and on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol, chamber music performances in the Terrace Theater and on the Millennium Stage, and an extensive educational program.
