On Sept. 19, the Clinical Center and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences welcomed the full National Symphony Orchestra to Bldg. 10. The orchestra performed works by Beethoven, Bach and Brahms as well as Duke Ellington, Leroy Anderson, John Williams, Emmanuel Sejourne and Aaron Copland.

The performance featured William Gerlach on trumpet, Eric Shin on vibraphone and Steven Reineke as conductor. Their visit marks the NSO’s 18th time performing in the Clinical Center as a part of its Sound Health initiative. NSO ensembles have scheduled performances at the Clinical Center Nov. 9 and Dec. 12.
