Led by its dynamic Music Director, Piotr Gajewski, the National Philharmonic is known for
performances that have been described by The Washington Post as "powerful,"
impeccable," and "thrilling." The orchestra maintains a longstanding tradition of offering

assuring its place as an accessible and enriching institution that serves Montgomery County
and the greater Washington, DC area.
As the ensemble-in-residence at the Music Center at Strathmore, the National Philharmonic
