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

No stage composer and lyricist matches the creativity and wit of Stephen Sondheim. From Sweeney Todd to Sunday in the Park with George and Assassins, his creations remain true to his own interests while tapping into America’s fascination with the big questions of life as explored through art. Echoing the Kennedy Center’s 2002 tribute to this master of music and lyrics, Marvin Hamlisch conducts the NSO Pops in Sondheim at 80, a concert of Sondheim’s best-loved tunes in celebration of his 80th birthday, featuring performances by Liz Callaway, Michael Cerveris, Brian d’Arcy James, Maria Friedman, and Patricia Noonan. This is a little night music you don’t want to miss!
