Beijing Symphony Orchestra's First U.S. Tour
Acclaimed in its home country and famed for its support of native composers, the Beijing Symphony Orchestra comes to America for the first time since its 1977 inception with works by Guo Wenjing and Sergei Prokofiev. Under the skilled baton of musical director and principal conductor Tan Lihua, they'll perform Wenjing's Lotus Overture, his acclaimed piece from the 2008 Olympic games in China, as well as Desolate Mountain, his concerto for orchestra and traditional bamboo flute. The concert's set to be capped off by Prokofiev's classic Romeo and Juliet.

Parking is NOT free for shows at the Levine School of Music, but is free for the Strathmore. Confusing and disappointing.Percussionists Manny Arciniega and Adam Green: Unknown Voices travel • May 08 2014 star this tip starred

Leave home early, even if you live close. At this time of year and time of evening, Rockville Pike and other roads are usually bumper-to-bumper, plus the line to get into the parking lot (from Rockville Pike onto Tuckerman Lane, (vs. where you enter for the Mansion, despite the posted road sign), is one lane, also bumper to bumper. Parking is free but another challenge still lies ahead with long waits for elevators in the parking garage, transversing the long, elevated corrider between the parking lot and the venue, and additional elevators with long lines inside the venue, which take you to the level of your assigned seats (there is an elevator operator checking tickets and telling individuals if they're on the correct elevator, etc.). If you're not familiar with this whole scenario, best to leave a trail of breadcrumbs from your parking space to your seat, assuming there are no birds in sight. : \A Candlelight Christmas travel • Dec 24 2013 star this tip starred
