The National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C., will perform live on National Public Radio’s broadcast of “All Things Considered” today, February 27. Though pop bands and funk groups have performed live for “All Things Considered,” the NSO is the first orchestra to do so. Led by Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke from the NPR studios in Washington, the orchestra will play the music featured before and after all of the news segments, as well as new arrangements of the “All Things Considered” theme. Reineke and NSO trombonist David Murray will also participate in a question-and-answer session to be streamed at NPR Live and the NPR and NSO’s Facebook pages; those outlets will also show video clips of the orchestra. “All Things Considered” feeds live from 4 to 6 p.m. EST at http://www.npr.org/ and to NPR member stations. Stations and more broadcast times are listed at http://www.npr.org/stations/.
