Washington - The National Gallery of Art’s new exhibit, America Collects Eighteenth-Century French Painting (May 21 through August 20, 2017) asks what American collectors make of France in the eighteenth-century, the period during which the nations were each other’s closest allies. On the exhibit’s opening day, the Marine Chamber Orchestra will present works by noted French composers Jean-Phillippe Rameau and Jean-Marie Leclair, as well as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s stunning tribute to Paris, his Symphony No. 31 in D, setting the tone to appreciate these seventy eighteenth-century paintings from collections across America. The concert will take place at 2 p.m., Sunday, May 21, in the National Gallery of Art's West Garden Court in northwest Washington, DC. Free admission.
