Maestro Christopher Eschenbach and the National Symphony Orchestra pay tribute to composer Richard Strauss with a performance of his 1888 tone poem Don Juan, as well as excerpts from the modernist operas, 1908's Elektra and 1905's hit Salome, based on Oscar Wilde's play.

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.
