The National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and Music Director Gianandrea Noseda announce a community and education performance during Noseda’s inaugural season as music director. Drawing on Noseda’s desire to deepen the NSO’s ties to its community and ignite an interest in orchestral music for new audiences, the added community concert is free and open to all.
Noseda will lead the NSO in a FREE concert on Wednesday, November 15, at 7:30 p.m. at The Anthem,  Washington’s newest venue, at The Wharf in Southwest, D.C. The performance showcases a range of colorful orchestral works by Leonard Bernstein, Respighi, and Gershwin, and spotlights NSO Concertmaster Nurit Bar-Josef. The concert is free; reservations are recommended to guarantee seating. Reserve seats by visiting The Anthem’s ticketing website.  Access will be first-come, first-served for those without reservations.

Audiences of all ages are welcome for this no-intermission concert that showcases the NSO’s wide-ranging ability to perform music in a variety of styles. This performance at The Anthem—the first there by an orchestra—marks the first time that Noseda has led the orchestra in a setting outside the Kennedy Center, which he feels is critical for both the Orchestra and the greater D.C. community.
“Community concerts are a critical part of our mission at the National Symphony Orchestra,” said Music Director Gianandrea Noseda. “We intend to connect with the larger D.C. community as often as we can. Free concerts are one of our ways to engage with a broader audience, and, together, we look forward to making music throughout the season both in our home at the Kennedy Center and in unexpected places around the city.”
“This is very, very exciting,” said Seth Hurwitz, owner of The Anthem, chairman of I.M.P. and co-owner of the 9:30 Club. “We built this place to be the best venue in D.C. for everything from big rock shows to symphony orchestras. We’ve seen how it works for one of those. I can’t wait to see the other. I will be there for sure.”
