    DC's Unconducted Orchestra Plays Beethoven 6
    On November 18, at 5pm, the Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra will perform
    Mozart, Berlioz, and Beethoven in St. John's Church, Lafayette Square.
    Washington, DC—The Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra (ANCO) has announced
    its full program for the November 18 full-orchestra season opener at St.
    John's Church, Lafayette Square. In addition to Beethoven's sixth symphony
    (the "Pastoral"), the orchestra will perform Mozart's Don Giovanni Overture
    and, with soprano Tracy Labrecque-Pearson, selections from Les nuits d'été
    (Summer Nights), the Op. 7 song cycle by Hector Berlioz.
    ANCO is spending its 2018-19 season in residency at St. John's Church,
    Lafayette Square. The church is rich in DC history, both political and musical:
    President Lincoln sometimes walked across the Square to attend services,
    and Benjamin Latrobe (the architect of the Capitol) designed the church
    building then served as its first organist.
    This fall's ANCO concert begins at 5pm, November 18, 2018. St. John's
    Church, Lafayette Square, is at 16th and H Streets NW, Washington, DC
    20005. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $5 for students, and can be
