Jim James to Perform with National Symphony Orchestra

Posted by Greg on Aug 8, 2019 in Music |

One of our favorite musicians, Jim James (of My Morning Jacket), continues to pull out all the stops, always pushing himself to do something more.

On Sept. 4 at 8 p.m., James will partner with the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) Pops for a live performance of his upcoming new album at The Kennedy Center. A local chorus will also be featured. The first half of the evening features compositions from Mason Bates’ “Warehouse Medicine,” Julia Wolfe’s Big Beautiful Dark and Scary and Copland’s Four Dance Episodes.

The concert coincides (perhaps intentionally) with James’ collaboration with Teddy Abrams, music director of the Louisville Orchestra. Abrams will also be conducting the NSO during the performance.

For those close to Northern Virginia, ticket buyers to this performance will be offered an exclusive opportunity to pre-purchase James’s new album, and will also receive a signed poster with their order. Patrons 30 and under and active-duty members of the military are invited to join the Kennedy Center’s MyTix program for special discount offers and chances to win free tickets.
