Pictured here, a detail of Dufy’s Rue Royal that recently passed through Freeman’s and exceeded estimates.
RECENTLY REVISED: Starry Night is a piece for chamber orchestra that portrays Vincent van Gogh's iconic painting, Starry Night, while also depicting his inner darkness. Van Gogh was a man who could see the beauty in the world but struggled to see it in himself.

#Repost @turnspotlight, congrats to our Artistic Director Andrew Lee
Meet Lumos Fellow Andrew Lee, an Artistic Director based in Washington, D.C.
Andrew is the founder of @DCStrings_, which strives to prove that access to excellence in music is an essential human right.
“DC Strings is not making music for the sake of music – we speak to the moment. Our concerts and experiences for patrons provide a space to dissect and discuss our city’s challenges in intimate ways. We also create opportunities for musicians, composers, and conductors. For me, there is unspeakable joy in challenging assumptions, biases, and stereotypes to present a more complete portrait of what classical music looks like.” #classicalmusic#dmv#orchestras#music#arts •
Andrew will be mentored by arts education activist @alysiadlee
