*This* Is Probably The Right Way For An Orchestra To Do A Nightclub Concert

Anne Midgette on a National Symphony Orchestra concert at Anthem, a new riverfront club in southwest DC: "[Rather than] pander to a younger audience by giving it what they think it wants to hear, ... this performance had the orchestra, in street clothes, simply playing the music it does well, including large chunks of this week's subscription program. Rather than chasing the audience, it introduced itself as it is and let the audience come to it."
