Elizabeth Schulze is the National Symphony Orchestra Summer Music Institute conductor.  This summer's Institute includes 57 students from 23 states.  During the course of the SMI's four weeks, participants perform ten Kennedy Center concerts that are free and open to the public, culminating in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on July 27th at 6 pm with a grand finale featuring Debussy's Nuages and Fetes from Nocturnes, Vaughan Williams' 2nd Symphony, "London," and a yet-to-be-determined concerto which will feature the winner of the SMI concerto competition.  Ms. Schulze chats with WETA's Nicole Lacroix about working with talented young musicians, and how they are already changing the direction of classical music. There's a complete schedule and more information about the Summer Music Institute on the Kennedy Center website.
