Organ Donation at the Kennedy Center

The announcement was made on Sunday night from the stage of the concert hall at the gala season opener of the National Symphony Orchestra. Too: Christoph Eschenbach is extending his contract as music director of the Kennedy Center and NSO by two years, to 2014-15. The full story is here: Kennedy Center extends Eschenbach’s contract; new organ in works, by Anne Midgette.
