If you’re looking to liven up a date night or find an activity to entertain the kids without putting you to sleep, the National Symphony Orchestra’s performance this May is the perfect plan. The NSO, will perform pieces from two of the most renowned romantic composers in history, starting with Tchaikovsky’s famed The Nutcracker Suite, followed by Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Visitors will also be treated to a performance of Christopher Rouse’s Organ Concerto. If you’re particularly interested in learning about the history of the works you’ll hear, make sure to stop by the pre-concert lecture.
