National Orchestral Institute + Festival Music Director Marin Alsop conducts a program powered by nature. Inspired by scenic upstate New York, Jessie Montgomery’s Caught by the Wind implements brilliant counterpoint to portray the planet’s various natural cycles. Nathan Lincoln-DeCusatis' violin concerto The Maze is based on Utah’s vast Canyonlands National Park and mimics geologic transformation over time. Beethoven's beloved "Pastoral" Symphony journeys through various landscapes—from a sunny countryside to a serene brook to a thunderous storm.
Wolf Trap will host community healthcare workers and volunteers and educators for this complimentary performance in recognition of their heroic efforts over the past year.
