FREE NSO Concert at THEARC on January 7th





Sat., Jan 7, 2012 at 11 a.m.



1901 Mississippi Ave SE • Washington, DC 20020



Instrument Petting Zoo at 10 a.m.






NSO musician Glenn Donnellan has joined together two of his most unlikely likes: the violin and … baseball?? Yes! In this home-run performance, kids are introduced to the Electric Slugger™–a new electric violin that he custom made out of a Louisville Slugger(r) baseball bat. Playing a variety of violins from around the world, Donnellan brings together far-flung musical styles–from mystical Eastern music to American fiddling, Vivaldi to Van Halen–revealing the histories of these world instruments and the science of how a violin makes its music. For age 4 and up.


Come early for the Musical Instrument “Petting Zoo.” Starting one hour before the Kinderkonzert, this hands-on activity in the Boys and Girls Clubs Game Room 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.
