DECLASSIFIED: Drop the Needle featuring Mason Bates & Anne Akiko Meyers with the National Symphony Orchestra @ Kennedy Center Concert Hall
Says the New York Times: American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers brings "playing that flows from the heart." As the top-selling instrumentalist on Billboard's 2014 classical charts, she performs an innovative violin concerto by new Kennedy Center Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates, "whose cheerful disregard for stylistic boundaries is a godsend" (San Francisco Chronicle). Meyers performed and recorded the world premiere of Bates's acclaimed concerto in 2012. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ABOUT DECLASSIFIED: FRIDAYS AT 9 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The secret is out! Some of the NSO's Friday night programs are taking on a whole new vibe with a fresh mix of sound and vision plus exciting pre- and post-concert activities, all at a great price. For the 2015–2016 season, the NSO has "unlocked" some of its standard Friday programs and opened them up to fresh concepts in concert-going with DECLASSIFIED: Fridays at 9. Not your typical Concert Hall experience, these late evenings will include an eclectic mix of classic and modern sounds, special guest artists, dynamic multimedia, audience interaction, and pre- and/or post-performance activities. They'll begin at 9
. (an hour later than usual) and last 60–75 minutes (shorter than a typical program), all at a great price for making memorable nights out with a date or a group of friends! If you heard about the NSO's concert at
.'s Echostage in January 2015, you'll know exactly what to expect at these new concerts: - Come as you are: straight from work, in jeans, or whatever suits your fancy. Be ready to move! - Arrive early and/or stay after the concert for added fun to be announced--each night will be a different experience. - Grab drinks or snacks anytime and bring them back into the Concert Hall. - Most importantly, open your mind to a music experience where anything can happen! Performance Timing: Approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission
Hypnotist Flip Orley @ DC Improv
No two Flip Orley shows are the same, which is why he's been a DC Improv favorite since the 1990s. Flip uses hypnosis to turn audience members into the stars of the show. He leads volunteers through twisted scenarios, getting reactions that are almost beyond belief – and he does it all without humiliating anyone. Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, Flip’s show is unforgettable. And no, we weren’t hypnotized into writing this.
