Canadian pianist and former child prodigy Angela Hewitt may be best known for her nine-year recording project featuring a complete cycle of Bach's major keyboard works, but for her National Symphony Orchestra debut, she'll perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22. As heard in the award-winning film Amadeus, that diverse work includes difficult solos and a lively finale that's book-ended by a poignant minuet. Conductor David Zinman leads the NSO through another famous film theme as well, Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra, so compellingly used in Stanley Kubrick's ground-breaking 2001: A Space Odyssey.

When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night.

Join The Washington Chorus as they pay tribute to our nation’s veterans with two intensely powerful works. Experience the famous, thunderous kettledrums of Haydn’s Mass in Time of War paired with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace). Vaughan Williams’ turned to the text of Walt Whitman as well as the scriptures to create one of the most poignant and eloquent pleas for peace in all the choral repertoire. Dynamic guest conductor Julian Wachner leads the chorus and orchestra with a cast of world-class soloists. Award-winning ABC News correspondent and U.S. Army veteran Sam Donaldson opens the concert.
A post-concert Talk Back! in the Concert Hall immediately follows the performance. Murray Horwitz, Director of the AFI Silver Theater and NPR commentator joins conductor Julian Wachner.
