Join us for an enlightening evening of music, conversation, and wine (of course!) at the beautiful hidden gem of DC, the Art Museum of the Americas. Peek into the brain of NOW's Artistic Director, Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez, as he reveals how this unique program, ranging from Holst and Ravel to Radiohead and a newly commissioned work, came about. Take part in the conversation of how the arts have the power to heal.

"World War I was such a significant event that determined the fate of the 20th century and the direction of our present day. This program is an opportunity to explore those ideas - why and how war happens and how we can find peace in the current global and political climate.” - AHV
