Summon the Heroes!
National Symphony Orchestra Young People's Concert
Heroes exist in history, movies, and comic books, but also in our own communities and even our own homes. From firefighters to Olympic athletes, soldiers to even the heroes in ourselves, heroes are all around us.
Throughout the ages, composers have celebrated the accomplishments of famous heroes through music. This program explores how classical music has wonderfully depicted heroes for centuries—heroes both real and fictional, from America or far-away lands. What does a hero “sound” like? Get ready to find out!
Join NSO Assistant Conductor Ankush Kumar Bahl and the National Symphony Orchestra for a rousing concert celebrating heroes—especially what it takes to be a hero—and how to know a hero when you see (and hear) one.
