Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
The National Symphony Orchestra has been the premier symphonic orchestra in the Washington region since its founding in 1931, but, despite a name that connotes national prominence, it historically lands beneath other big-city orchestras in national rankings. Gianandrea Noseda, the NSO’s new music director, acknowledges the orchestra’s lackluster reputation in the music world. One of his stated goals is to raise the NSO’s prominence, both internationally and locally, and to transform it into a world-class orchestra that is also very much a part of the community. Kojo chats with the Italian conductor about his first major appointment at an American orchestra and his plans for the NSO.
