A pair of ruby slippers will take you home, but where do a pair of sparkly sneakers take you? Right to a Young People’s Concert at the NSO, of course!
This week the NSO is hosting over 10,000 local school children from Maryland, D.C., and Virginia for five performances of a Young People’s Concert.
NSO Principal Second Violin Marissa Regni dons her sparkly shoes with conductor Michael Butterman to lead the NSO to the final frontier: space! The performance, called Reach for the Moon: John F. Kennedy’s Vision and Courage, explores different space-themed music.
From “Mars” from Holst’s The Planets to the main theme from Star Wars there’s something for all young earthlings to enjoy. We’re having a great time seeing so many young people in the Concert Hall!
