Event Details

The National Symphony Orchestra kicks off its summer season at Wolf Trap with Beethoven’s Ninth, the symphony by which all others are measured. The cosmic drama of this colossal masterwork—its grand, emotional melodies and the tremendous closing “Ode to Joy”—reminds us why Beethoven’s final symphony resounds as loudly today as it did two centuries ago. This sublime program opens with Sphinx Concerto Competition winner Njioma Grevious performing Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s irresistibly bold and lyrical Violin Concerto.
