Philharmonic of Many Colors by the National Philharmonic
It's a special night of music when the National Philharmonic presents Philharmonic of Many Colors at Strathmore. Featuring soprano Danielle Talamantes, the National Philharmonic Chorale and Maestro Piotr Gajewski, the concert opens with Ravel's most famous work, the hypnotic Bolero. Then it's on to one of Poulenc's most celebrated works, Gloria, scored for soprano, large orchestra and chorus. Closing out the evening is Rimsky-Korsakov's famous Scheherazade. Based on the tales of The Arabian Nights, this symphonic suite is chock-full of dazzling orchestration and splendid violin solos that'll carry you through the rest of the night.

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
