The Smithsonian Chamber Music Society celebrates its 36th season with an appropriately eclectic repast, balancing familiar masterworks with undeservedly neglected oeuvres perdues.
The Smithsonian Chamber Orchestra performs music of Ravel, Copland, and Shostakovich in the Renwick Gallery’s Grand Salon in March.
One hour prior to each program, Kenneth Slowik, SCMS artistic director and recipient of the 2011 Smithsonian Secretary’s Distinguished Research Lecture Award, provides a pre-concert talk, shedding light on the glorious music and the life and times of the featured composers.
