All You Need is Love (21st Century Consort)

  • Smithsonian American Art Museum 8th and F Streets NW Washington, DC 20004 (map)

Well, maybe it’s not ALL you need; a little music is also good. For Valentine’s Day, the Consort digs deep to find contemporary classical music that explores the subject of romance viewed from multiple vantage points, in a program that ends with a Valentine surprise.

JEFFREY MUMFORD: An Evolving Romance

SCOTT WHEELER: Serenata
