The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, National Symphony Orchestra, and medici.tv will film and stream three NSO concerts between January and June 2017. The first of the three live-streamed performances will take place on January 22 at 3 p.m., with two evening concert streams to follow on February 11 and June 17. NSO Music Director Designate Gianandrea Noseda will lead an all-American program on the January 22 program, with actress Phylicia Rashad serving as narrator for Copland’s Lincoln Portrait. Joshua Bell will lead the February 11 concert as part of his weeklong residency at the Kennedy Center, and Christoph Eschenbach will lead his final concert as music director on June 17, featuring Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with Washington’s Choral Arts Society and vocal soloists. The three concerts will be streamed free, with on-demand streaming available for 90 days following the initial live broadcast.
