Catching up with reviews from around the holiday weekend.
Robert Battey heard the NSO and Helmut Rilling in Mendelssohn’s ”Elijah.”
Stephen Brookes kept busy. He reviewed the opening of the Overtures series, a group of seven concerts at the Kennedy Center commemorating the centenary of Japan’s gift of cherry trees to Washington, starting with the soprano Maki Mori. (The final concert in the series is a recital by the pianist Yu Kosuge, tonight.)
"People are impressed that CYSO has its own app. InstantEncore makes it very easy for us to create and maintain an engaging mobile presence. The At-The-Event feature has been particularly great for prompting people to interact with us via social media."
