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
The Consort celebrates Christmas at the court and chapel of Henry VIII, where, if you were queen, you could briefly enjoy music of rustic pleasures and contrapuntal sophistication. In the Elizabethan Theatre beautifully decked out for the season, Renaissance winds and a quartet of male vocalists perform traditional ballads and carols, along with music by chapel master William Cornysh and pieces by King Henry himself.
