Evermay Chamber Play Fantasia Suite Carnival of the Animals & Tchaikovsky
Evermay Chamber is a dynamic new nine-person ensemble of world-renowned classical musicians assembled by the glamorous Tamaki Kawakubo, a violin virtuoso whose performance credits range from the Los Angeles Philharmonic to the Russian National Orchestra. At this exciting Strathmore event they'll play one of Tchaikovsky's rare chamber music pieces, the bold yet lilting sextet Souvenir de Florence, as well as the whimsical Saint-Saëns suite, The Carnival of the Animals. The latter piece was made famous when it accompanied a charming scene involving dancing flamingos in Disney's Fantasia.

Parking is NOT free for shows at the Levine School of Music, but is free for the Strathmore. Confusing and disappointing.star this tip starred
Leave home early, even if you live close. At this time of year and time of evening, Rockville Pike and other roads are usually bumper-to-bumper, plus the line to get into the parking lot (from Rockville Pike onto Tuckerman Lane, (vs. where you enter for the Mansion, despite the posted road sign), is one lane, also bumper to bumper. Parking is free but another challenge still lies ahead with long waits for elevators in the parking garage, transversing the long, elevated corrider between the parking lot and the venue, and additional elevators with long lines inside the venue, which take you to the level of your assigned seats (there is an elevator operator checking tickets and telling individuals if they're on the correct elevator, etc.). If you're not familiar with this whole scenario, best to leave a trail of breadcrumbs from your parking space to your seat, assuming there are no birds in sight. : \star this tip starred
