Reviews of National Symphony Orchestra

Though the Kennedy Center is its main performance home, the National Symphony Orchestra plays all around the DC area and beyond during its annual 150-show season. Since its founding in 1931, the NSO’s events have included classical concerts by the world’s great composers old and new, pops concerts, chamber performances in the Terrace Theater and on Millennial Stage, summer shows at Wolf Trap, and so much more. A staple of many state occasions and presidential inaugurations, the world-class musicianship of “America’s orchestra” has been heard on the Classical WETA-FM radio station, and live television broadcasts such as PBS’ coverage of Memorial Day and Independence Day celebrations.

A wonderful Pops concert that had the audience's attention from start to finish. Even the youngest members seemed to enjoy the program.

Very good seats (row H, just off aisle in side section) for an excellent performance of rarely heard piece (Mahler's 10th - last played here in 1986). A wonderful evening!

attended National Symphony Orchestra: Handel’s Messiah on Dec 18 2015

Good performance (esp the chorus) - Conductor had the piece played quite quickly - fast tempos

Seats were row H and off to the side
Would have preferred something back and more to the center

While Ms. Large had an OK voice, the quartet was incomprehensible so it was hard to follow. The worst part of the experience was the obnoxious pair seated beside me who crunched snack mix through the first performance - didn't realize the Kennedy...continued
