NATIONAL CHAMBER ENSEMBLE
"A meaty sound...a delightful spring in its step...abundant in jovial wit." -The Washington Post "Exciting new ensemble...playing with great sensitivity and accuracy...moments of musical ecstasy." - DC Performing Arts Examiner
The National Chamber Ensemble, Artisphere's Ensemble in Residence, performs exceptional music and enriches our cultural life.
