The beloved National Philharmonic kicks off its 2014-2015 season with hauntingly beautiful works by three of classical music's most influential composers. The program begins with Mendelssohn's Shakespeare ode A Midsummer Night's Dream Overture, which uses magical melodies to capture the play's whimsical characters and mischievous spirit. Then, award-winning violinist Chee-Yun takes center stage for Jean Sibelius' Concerto for Violin, the only concerto the Finnish composer ever wrote. Then, the orchestra thrillingly concludes the concert with Dvorák's mesmerizing New World Symphony, written during the Czech composer's stay in America and employing Native American tunes to capture the spirit of this country.

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

I have been a fan of the Washington Symphonic Brass for more than 10 years. I am delighted that they are now at Strathmore and Strathmore has added greatly to the experience by adding wonderful lighting, Christmas decorations, and placing the players throughout the auditorium.
Phil Snedecor does a wonderful job of introducing the music and the musicians are top notch.
