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

Wonderful venue, small and intimate. The performers were lively and talented and the subject and music were both facinating and unique. Interesting how the manuscripts were found, reconstructed and performed; one really had a sense of being back in the 13th century.
Treating love in all its guises, the songs of the troubadours and lively dances for fiddles, harps, citole, flutes, and percussion celebrate the joy of love requited.
With soprano Johana Arnold, instrumentalists Robert Eisenstein, Christopher Kendall, and other guests
