National Symphony Orchestra performing in Port of Spain

Under the baton of Maestro Christoph Eschenbach, the Kennedy Center's National Symphony Orchestra returned at the end of June from a landmark "Tour of the Americas," where they performed eight concerts in Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, and Brazil, making them the first United States Orchestra to go on such a major tour of South America in a decade. The National Symphony Orchestra extended their high level of art across the Americas for ambassadors, prime ministers, and other notable dignitaries who were in attendance - even the President of Trinidad and Tobago, who attended the red

carpet event concert in Port of Spain in honor of his country's 50th anniversary of independence.

Some highlighted concerts included the Teatro Colón, a venue considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the world, as well as the legendary Teatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro and Teatro Municipal in São Paolo. Glorious reviews by top newspapers commented on the National Symphony Orchestra's sparkling sound after each concert. Throughout the tour, the National Symphony Orchestra's members took the time to give back to local communities by providing workshops and outreach events in each country they visited.

Argentina's prestigious Teatro Colon, as seen above, was just one of the great venues performed at during the Tour of the Americas.

"The National Symphony has a long and happy relationship with Classical Movements, a premiere concert touring company. Our tour would not have been a success without them! This year, Classical Movements is celebrating their 20th year of arranging concert tours around the world. The National Symphony Orchestra was their first orchestra client 15 years ago, and the Americas Tour 2012 marks the 25th tour Classical Movements has arranged for the NSO. To celebrate the occasion, they graciously invited us to a delicious steak dinner and captivating Tango show in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Our musicians and staff had a wonderful time and learned a bit about Argentina's culture too. Thank you, Classical Movements - we're looking forward to working with you for our 2013 European Tour!"
