NSO Chamber Group Performs at CRC
How sweet the sound when the National Symphony Orchestra performed in the Clinical Research Center atrium on Sep. 2. The repertoire included Amazing Grace, Mozart’s Allegro from movement 1 of Eine Kleine Nachtmusika and several other classical selections.
Led by Lina Gonzalez-Granados, an internationally acclaimed young conductor, the NSO’s chamber group comprises strings and percussion. It was no surprise that the Colombian-American conductor—dedicated to highlighting works by Latin-American composers—included a Peruvian composition in the mix, the lively Coqueteos from Gabriela Lena Frank’s Leyenda: an Andean Walkabout.
The concert marks the start of the 9th year of the NIH-Kennedy Center Sound Health partnership.
