NOW: New Orchestra of Washington
Presented by the JCC of Greater Washington in Rockville, MD
Monday, May 30, 2016 - 9:00pm
Dr. Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez is the Co-founder, Conductor and Artistic Director of the New Orchestra of Washington (NOW), a one-of-a-kind ensemble. As a compact chamber orchestra that generally performs one-on-a-part, every member's artistic contribution is essential and therefore every member is elevated to his or her highest potential as an individual virtuoso and an ensemble player. NOW's programming is neither strictly classical, nor purely academic; rather, each program is conceived to attract, inspire, and be remembered.
This program, titled "Mostly Russia," was recorded at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington in Rockville, Maryland on December 13, 2015 by David Gradin of DG Productions.
