In 2017, Mayor Muriel Bowser unveiled the newly renovated expansion of the Kenilworth Recreation Center, designed to be eco-friendly and energy-efficient. To highlight the city’s continued commitment of support for economic development in Ward 7, the NSO is hosting a Neighborhood Block Party in advance of a full orchestra concert. Activities include local small business vendors, snacks, D.C. Public Library’s Go-Go Tech Truck, an Instrument Petting Zoo, performances from The MusicianShip’s All-City Drumline, and more!

Beginning at 2 p.m., the National Symphony Orchestra offers a full orchestra concert at the Kenilworth Recreation Center. Conductor Joseph Young makes his NSO debut with a program of diverse composers and unique compositions, featuring D.C. violinist and vocalist Chelsey Green and The Green Project. Seating is first-come, first-served, and space is limited. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

Presented as part of NSO In Your Neighborhood, a community engagement initiative that provides free NSO performances and activities for one week in a specific D.C. neighborhood.

#NSOneighbor events range from full NSO concerts and chamber performances to in-school visits and masterclasses, presented in collaboration with local and community-based venues.
