Music at National

National presents a full calendar of musical events featuring some of the finest ensembles and soloists from the DC area, across the nation and around the world.  


Drawing on the gorgeous acoustics of our beautiful sanctuary, and our glorious Aeolian-Skinner organ (not to mention our ample free parking!), many major arts organizations find a welcome home at NPC for their subscription seasons or special concerts. Information and tickets are available through the individual organizations’ websites.

"Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world."
