Established in 1978, The Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra is the resident orchestra of the beautiful Opera House of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. It is the only orchestra in the country dedicated solely to the performance of three musical genres: opera, ballet and musical theater.

The Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra Quintet’s touring program showcases compositions from America as well as beloved international pieces with a special focus on ballets and operas. Their repertoire include selections from William Grant Still, Claude Debussy, Astor Piazzolla, Maurice Ravel, Myroslav Storyk as well as George Gershwin.

Classical Movements has been presenting the annual Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival across the country since 2009 and is the same company that brought the Minnesota Orchestra, as the first professional US Orchestra to tour to Africa, on their groundbreaking tour to South Africa in 2018. This time, they are bringing two renowned American chamber ensembles to the country.
