Innovation Fund

Join National Philharmonic as we present 15 streamed performances, twice a month, starting in October. Not only will the quality of music be up to the high standards you’ve come to expect from our performances, they will be filmed using a state-of-the-art TV camera format so rich in sound and picture that you will almost feel like you are there. Whether you wear pearls or pajamas is up to you. The 2020-21 National Philharmonic Season will present:

  • 8 orchestral concerts led by Piotr Piotr Gajewski, Music Director and Conductor from Strathmore.
  • 7 chamber concerts from AMP by Strathmore with an emphasis on women composers and composers of color, curated by new Concertmaster Laura Colgate and hosted by Tamika Smith WAMU’s Weekend Edition host for NPR’s WAMU 88.5.

Innovation Fund Benefits

Support us in presenting this season and in producing these performances, which celebrate the beauty and power of music in the world, in a concrete and accessible way.
