National Symphony Orchestra Labor Day Concert - Live Stream at Park Up DC
2400 East Capitol St NE, Washington, DC 20003, USA
The National Symphony Orchestra returns for their annual Labor Day Concert. Acclaimed composer Jessie Montgomery’s “Strum” draws on American folk idioms for a nostalgic and ecstatic narrative. D.C. native George Walker—the first African American recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music—offers his enduring remembrance of lost loved ones in “Lyric for Strings.” Gabriela Lena Frank’s “Coquetos from An Andean Walkabout” mixes western classical and Andean folk music traditions for a flirtatious love song. Plus, works from “Dean of African American Composers” William Grant Still, Aaron Copland, and more! The NSO's
annual series of Capitol Concerts is made possible by the U.S. Department of
the Army and the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service,
National Capital Region, National Mall and Memorial Parks.
The National Symphony Orchestra annual Labor Day Concert live stream at Park Up DC is presented by the Kennedy Center, Events DC and Broccoli City.
