The sensual vocals and poetic songwriting of Grammy-winning singer Mary Chapin Carpenter helped propel her 1992 country album Come On Come On to quadruple-platinum status. Since then, her beautiful music has become more socially and politically oriented, while also increasingly bringing in orchestral elements. Her latest album, Songs From the Movie, revisits tunes from her past, setting them to symphonic instrumentation evocative of a stirring film score. Now, you can see her play these compelling reinventions of her own with the National Symphony Orchestra. Learn More
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.NSO: Koh Plays Barber info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

the scheduled conductor could not make it due to weather. fortunately a local, renown, conductor filled in. he was humorous. theme was mainly star wars and other classical pieces heard at other NSO Pops concerts. i wanted something different. perhaps another time.
Nobody knows the music that accompanies the flicker of the film projector better than Oscar and three-time Emmy-winner Bill Conti. He has composed cinematic scores to match some of Hollywood’s biggest roles—James Bond as he takes on the KGB, Rocky Balboa as he sprints up steps in Philadelphia, and America’s first astronauts as they reach for the moon—and has served as Music Director of the Academy Award ceremonies more than a dozen times. In And the Winner Is…, the composer turns conductor for a Pops performance of music from the year’s Academy Award favorites. It’s one big Oscar party where everyone goes home a winner.
