The DC Listening Lounge presents all sorts of sounds at the Goethe-Institut Saturday.
(July 28) Five siblings, fifty fingers and a National Symphony Orchestra
Fifty fingers tickle the ivories tonight at Vienna's Wolf Trap. The 5 Browns are five Julliard-schooled siblings who make works by Mozart, Gershwin and Poulenc their own. They get some help from the National Symphony Orchestra.
(July 28-Sept. 11) Familiar scenes
Artisphere in Arlington opens Photo 11 today. The exhibit features exemplary images captured by talent from all over the Mid-Atlantic region, so you're likely to see some familiar scenes.
(July 30) Familiar sounds
For some familiar sounds there's D.C. SoundScene 2011 Saturday at Northwest Washington's Goethe-Institut. A gang of local radio producers and sound-makers known as The DC Listening Lounge presents an evening of interactive sound appreciation. Expect live music from local ambient acts, private listening stations with sounds from the natural world and more experimental stuff like a "sound jungle" of falling Slinkys.
Music: "Surgeon" by St. Vincent
