Co-Founders of D.C. newest, trend-setting orchestra, N. O. W. Grace Cho and Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez join Patrick for a lively and informative chat about the orchestra's inaugural concert season, "A TOAST TO SEASON ONE."
The concert will take place at 4 p.m. in the sanctuary of Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ in Bethesda, MD. Appropriately themed, "A Toast to Season One" the concert features music inspired by fanfares, food and beverages. Celebratory in nature, the program will include Peter Maxwell Davies' "Fanfare for Lowry" performed by the James Madison University trumpet studio and NOW members Chris and Christine Carrillo. Also featured on the program is the exuberant "Cafe Music" by Paul Schoenfield and Aaron Jay Kernis' highly innovative "Le Quattro Stagioni Dalla Cucina Futurismo" for piano trio and narrator. Rounding out the concert, NOW will present "La Revue de Cuisine" by Bohuslav Martinu, a truly fun piece for an unusual combination of instruments.
