Music Center Presenting Partner

Led by dynamic Music Director and Conductor Piotr Gajewski, the National Philharmonic is known for performances that are “powerful,” “impeccable,” and “thrilling” (The Washington Post). The National Philharmonic boasts a long-standing tradition of reasonably priced tickets and free admission to all young people ages 7-17, assuring its place as an accessible and enriching component in Montgomery County and the DC area.

As a presenting partner of the Music Center at Strathmore, the National Philharmonic showcases world-renowned guest artists in time-honored symphonic masterpieces conducted by Maestro Gajewski, whose “standards, taste and sensitivity are impeccable” (The Washington Post) and monumental choral masterworks under National Philharmonic Chorale Artistic Director Stan Engebretson, who “uncovers depth...structural coherence and visionary scope” (The Washington Post).
