Sometimes it’s fun to look fancy, but did you know that you can make music sound fancy, too? Luckily, NSO violinist Marissa Regni has fanciness to spare in this charming one-woman concert. Using classic works by Bach, Mozart, and Prokofiev, she demonstrates how musicians can spruce up their tunes with colorful ornamentations and creative variations. Talented graphic artist Marie Cheek joins Marissa onstage to help illustrate the idea of “decorating” your music in a unique and visual way.
NSO Kinderclassics are most enjoyed by age 4 and up.
Performance Timing: 50 minutes, with no intermission
Come early for the Musical Instrument “Petting Zoo.” Starting one hour before each Kinderclassic, this hands-on activity in the Kennedy Center Hall of States gives children a chance to get up close with the instruments they’ll see played on stage–from violins and trumpets to oboes and flutes. A project of the Women’s Committee for the NSO.
