New review of NCE program "All About Dvorak"


"Delightful...abundant in jovial wit."

                                                                               -- The Washington Post

"Nothing short of brilliant...playing with great sensitivity and accuracy...moments of musical ecstasy."

                                                                               -- DC Performing Arts Examiner

"National Chamber Ensemble is one of the musical gems of the entire Metro area...Their concerts are always fun and interesting, and the group presents a constantly changing program that includes every genre of music imaginable. The constants are that the music will be fabulous, the musicians will be wonderfully talented, and the atmosphere will always be intimate and welcoming to all."

The National Chamber Ensemble performs exceptional music and enriches our cultural life. From the classical to contemporary compositions, the National Chamber Ensemble's internationally-acclaimed musicians provide outstanding performances of chamber music in an intimate setting. The Ensemble also hosts visiting guest artists.

The National Chamber Ensemble brings together composers, musicians, performers and audiences to create an environment that is fun, welcoming and engaging. At times, the musicians share fascinating, short anecdotes about the composer and music, giving the audience another perspective on understanding the performance. The National Chamber Ensemble offers the connoisseur, as well as the first-time concertgoer, an exciting, musical experience.

Please join us at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre for a season filled with wonderful music!
