FEATURED PERFORMERS
Sarah Chang is recognized as one of the world’s great violinists. Since her debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of 8, she has performed with the greatest orchestras, conductors, and accompanists internationally in a career spanning more than 2 decades. The New York Times says “Her gifts are at a level so removed from the rest of us that all we can do is feel the appropriate awe and then wonder on the mysteries of nature.  The ancients would certainly have had Ms. Chang emerging fully formed from some Botticellian scallop shell.” For more information, visit her website here

Since winning the 2006 Sir Georg Solti International Conductors Competition, Korean conductor Shiyeon Sung is becoming known as one of the most exciting young conductors on the international scene. She is Associate Conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, a post created especially for her in 2009.

The National Symphony Orchestra has made Wolf Trap its summer home since the venue opened in 1971. The NSO is one of the finest, and through its PBS performances, one of the most visible orchestras in the country. Its performances include bold new works, beloved favorites, chamber music, original educational programming, and innovative pops programming in every genre.
