Symphony Center with singer China Forbes in an adventurous
evening of eclectic music. Enjoy classic tunes and selections
from their upcoming album featuring exquisite arrangements
by Thomas Lauderdale and unique four-part harmonies of The
von Trapps, the great-grandchildren of the famous Sound of
Music family. “This is rich, hugely approachable music, utterly
cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious. And it seems to speak
to just about everybody” (The Washington Post).

d’oeuvres and dancing at REMIX, featuring a preconcert VIP reception and
