Music for World Peace

“Creativity is the hardest work there is” — John F. Kennedy. Millennium Chamber Symphony celebrates the President John F. Kennedy centennial and pays tribute to the artistic leadership of the Kennedy White House, which encouraged Americans to explore and enjoy music in its many forms on a scale larger than any presidency had done before. In doing so, they hoped to focus national attention on the role of the arts in America and encourage the development of Washington as a cultural center. Yamaha Piano artist Alex Wu and the Millennium Chamber Symphony perform music by Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Duke Ellington, Astor Piazolla, and more.
