Our focus is on American composers, with a program featuring works by leading composer and performer Jessie Montgomery, "Dean of Afro-American Composers" William Grant Still, and winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize in music, Melinda Wagner. David Whiteside, principal flutist, whose playing is described as “dazzling,” “eloquent,” and “evocative” by The Washington Post, is the featured soloist.

A special thanks to our 2020-21 Season Sponsors – Jean and Paul Dudek; Ed Grossman and Rochelle Stanfield; Ted Mirecki, NatPhil Board Member; Martha Newman; Doug and Emily Jacobson; and Potter Violins.
