"The best NSO season at Wolf Trap in twelve years," says National Symphony Orchestra Wolf Trap Festival Conductor Emil de Cou. From Beethoven to Bernstein; the Grand Canyon to outer space, there's something for everyone. Friday night, July 27th, Emil leads the NSO in Ferde Grofe's "Grand Canyon Suite," and Gustav Holst's "The Planets," with a new H-D film of images from NASA choreographed to Holst's magnificent score. July 28th brings Beethoven's Ninth and Bruch's Scottish Fantasy, and on August 4th, you can watch the classic film West Side Story with live orchestral accompanyment by the NSO.
Emil de Cou stopped by the Classical WETA studios to talk about NSO's Wolf Trap concerts with producer Deb Lamberton.
