Fodor's Review

Under the direction of Christoph Eschenbach, the orchestra performs from September to June at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. In summer the orchestra performs at Wolf Trap and gives free concerts at Rock Creek Park's Carter Barron Amphitheatre. On Memorial and Labor Day weekends and July 4, the NSO performs on the West Lawn of the Capitol.
