    Visit a new temporary art installation, “Facets of Hope”, to honor the more than 1,400 lives lost to COVID-19 in Montgomery County.

    “Facets of Hope” will honor those we have lost by suspending one strand of crystals, in memory of each life lost in Montgomery County. The vintage crystals are clear, molded glass or cut crystal, and will be suspended from the arbor in the walkway. The exhibit will be installed on the wisteria arbor located in the Rose Garden. New strands will be added through the duration of the exhibit.

    The public can view the Facets of Hope outdoor exhibit from March through September. The beauty of the exhibit will evolve through the seasons, as spring wisteria blossom, and then transforms in summer months as the roses bloom.

Focusing as ever on finding fresh and revealing nuances in the piano repertoire, Schiff begins with a Headline Artist recital of Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert. Then, he steps into his well-known role of master educator, in an insightful Linger Longer lecture on Mozart’s Adagio in B minor. As those who attended Schiff’s back-to-back Schubert recital–lecture events for WPA will recall, the opportunity to experience Schiff’s artistry and delve into the thinking behind it is a treat not to be missed.

    Program:
    MOZART - Adagio in B minor, K. 540
    BEETHOVEN - Sonata No. 15 in D Major, Op. 28, “Pastoral”
    SCHUBERT - Sonata in D Major, D.850

    Featuring a Headline Artist performance plus:

    Linger Longer: Sir András Schiff presents an all-new lecture on Mozart’s stately and contemplative Adagio in B minor, K. 540.

    Additional components TBA

    Note: Home Delivery Plus viewers will have a second opportunity to experience Sir András Schiff, in conversation with pianist Schaghajegh Nosrati (June 4–10).

    Single-Event Price: $25

  • Story of the Tabla: Zakir Hussain and Masters of Percussion

    April 30, 2021  8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Online

    Longtime WPA audience favorite Zakir Hussain is the “indisputable tabla maestro” (Gramophone): an artist who has not only taken his instrument to its limits within its original discipline, Indian classical music, but who has vastly expanded the presence of both his instrument and musical heritage within other genres—including jazz, rock, and Irish and American folk music. In his Home Delivery Plus set on the Strathmore stage, he joins regular collaborators and one special guest from the D.C. scene—to be chosen by Hussain himself—in a musical exploration of “The Story of the Tabla,” from the drum’s origins to its leading-edge expressions. The package also includes an Opening Act by Hussain’s D.C.-based collaborator plus a Linger Longer “listening party,” in which Hussain shares and discusses some of the most influential recordings in his life, from childhood to today.

    Featuring a Headline Artist performance plus:

    Opening Act: A D.C.-based artist (TBA) selected by Zakir Hussain opens the show before joining Hussain for the Headline set.

    Linger Longer: “Zakir Hussain Listening Party,” in which the maestro plays and discusses some of the most important recordings in his life, from childhood to today.

    Additional components TBA

    Single-Event Price: $25

    Presented by Washington Performing Arts.

    OSVALDO GOLIJOV - Omaramor
    BACH - Suite No. 3 in C Major, BWV 1009

The vintage crystals are clear, molded glass or cut crystal, and will be suspended from the arbor in the walkway. The exhibit will be installed on the wisteria arbor located in the Rose Garden. New strands will be added through the duration of the exhibit.

    The public can view the Facets of Hope outdoor exhibit from March through September. The beauty of the exhibit will evolve through the seasons, as spring wisteria blossom, and then transforms in summer months as the roses bloom.

    The grounds at Brookside Gardens are open daily from sunrise to sunset, and the Visitor Center is open from 10 am to 2 pm.
