This Weekend in Washington: Highlights
In today's Washington Post: The NSO gives its last subscription concert of the season, by Anne Midgette.
(Edited to add: Philip Kennicott reviewed the same performance on his blog.)
Some local highlights this weekend:
The Wolf Trap Opera Company opens its summer season tonight with Cosi fan tutte. I was captivated by the opening production last summer and have been generally rooting for this small company, which gives young professional singers early stage experience, ever since.
When I first moved to Washington, one of the Post's regular critics told me that the orchestra of the National Orchestral Institute was one of the best in town. In the final public concert of its annual session, the orchestra - made up of student instrumentalists from around the country - is performing, tomorrow night, a program of Thomas Ades's "Asyla," Leos Janacek's "Sinfonietta," and the Tchaikovsky "Pathetique."
A few members of the National Symphony give a coda to the season: the Kennedy Center Chamber Players play Messaien's "Quartet for the End of Time" on Sunday.
