Canadian pianist and former child prodigy Angela Hewitt may be best known for her nine-year recording project featuring a complete cycle of Bach's major keyboard works, but for her National Symphony Orchestra debut, she'll perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22. As heard in the award-winning film Amadeus, that diverse work includes difficult solos and a lively finale that's book-ended by a poignant minuet. Conductor David Zinman leads the NSO through another famous film theme as well, Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra, so compellingly used in Stanley Kubrick's ground-breaking 2001: A Space Odyssey.

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

I try to attend the Choral Arts Society's Christmas concert every year. This year was especially good, I thought. Greatly enjoyed the guest mezzo and orchestra. And now I can add Russian to the list of languages I can't sing SILENT NIGHT in (but can enjoy trying to).

Live from Russia at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall under the gracious patronage of the Russian embassy, the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra and the Choral Arts Society of Washington present a holiday concert with Russian flair sure to capture the spirit of the season. Featuring a repertoire of Russian classical favorites, Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus, popular standards, audience sing-alongs and Russian folk music, attendees will celebrate the season with a Russian feast for the ears. Audience members will also learn to sing a verse of “Silent Night” in Russian.
