Metropolitan School of the Arts presents “Wreck It!”, and original musical, June 13-16th at the Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center on the Alexandria Campus of the Northern Virginia Community College. The show will feature hundreds of MSA students in dance, music, and theater. Based on the 2012 movie, this fun production tells the story of Ralph, an arcade game bad-guy who embarks on a mission to become a hero. Along the way, he meets a tough sergeant, evil queen, and an eccentric young glitch named Vanellope. Join us for a video game themed dance experience you won’t want to miss!

5/12 US Marine Chamber Orchestra presents “Beginnings and Endings”

Sunday, May 12, 2019
More Info

Roman Rabinovich will give a pre-concert lecture from 1:15-1:45 p.m.

This conductorless concert will highlight great works by composers at both the beginning and ending of their musical journeys. Washingtonian Alistair Coleman is a young composer at the beginning of a promising career. Meanwhile, Grieg’s String Quartet No. 1 was his first and final string quartet, but is full of style and texture, almost like a symphony, and Beethoven’s Emperor piano concerto was his final work for piano and his most musically evolved. To perform the virtuosic work, guest piano soloist Roman Rabinovich will join the orchestra for this special program.
