David Commanday is with us this week, talking about the first concert in the Heartland Festival Orchestra's upcoming concert. Their eighth season opens, fittingly, with a performance of Beethoven's Symphony no. 8. The orchestra is also joined by violinist Rachel Barton Pine in Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D. Commanday talks about both of those pieces, about some of the events Barton Pine will be presenting ahead of the concert, and about the orchestra's featured community partner, the Community Workshop and Training Center.
The concert is Saturday night at 7:30 at Five Points Washington.
