Classical WETA is pleased to support SHIFT, a week-long festival of American orchestras presented by the Kennedy Center and Washington Performing Arts. From March 27th through April 1st, four ensembles will present full-orchestra performances in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall as well as education events, symposia, and community events in venues around Washington.
Classical WETA hosts spoke with representatives of each ensemble as well as with the leaders of the two presenting organizations: Deborah Rutter (Kennedy Center) and Jenny Bilfield (Washington Performing Arts). Classical Conversations interview features will be added to this page through the beginning of the festival on March 27th — check back often.
