July 19th, the National Symphony Orchestra and singers from Wolf Trap Opera perform a semi-staged production of Verdi's La traviata. and the weekend of July 26-27 includes Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, Rachmaninov's second piano concerto, and a tribute to the iconic American photographer Ansel Adams with jazz-inspired orchestral music by Dave Brubeck, as well as works by Copland, Gershwin, and John Williams.
Classical WETA producer Deb Lamberton spoke with Emil about the line-up, and about what makes playing at the Filene Center "like a field trip."
