Cuesheet 2014-2015 Season

Beethoven at the Ballpark!

National Symphony Orchestra Kinderclassic

Ready to meet some all-star players? Let us introduce you to two people who play music and love baseball. First up, National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) violinist Glenn Donnellan, who plays a violin he made from a baseball bat. Next up, the Washington Nationals ballpark organist Matthew Van Hoose, who plays a keyboard that can sound like several instruments. Together they explore what baseball and music have in common.
