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
Delightful French and Italian cantatas tell tales from ancient myths about the desires, foibles and supernatural powers of gods and demi-gods.

Featured artists include soprano Rosa Lamoreaux and instrumentalists Robert Eisenstein, Christopher Kendall, Colin St. Martin, Linda Quan, and Webb Wiggins.
