The Fairfax Symphony concludes its current season on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at George Mason University's Center for the Arts. The English and French concert include Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand (with Adam Golka), Debussy's "La Mer", Purcell's "Funeral Music of Queen Mary" and his music for "The Gordian Knot Untied", and Elgar's "Enigma Variations." Classical WETA's morning host David Ginder chatted with FSO Music Director Christopher Zimmerman about the life-affirming Elgar variations (enigma or not), the subtlety of Debussy's portrait of the sea, and the astonding magic of a piano concerto that uses only one hand.
Inspired by the film Latino Americans, we decided to seek out a local perspective on the Latino experience in our community with our weta.org Digital Extras. Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.Watch now →
