Anyone who wants to fall in love with orchestral music could do worse than go to Maryland in June. The National Orchestral Institute, held every year at the University of Maryland at College Park, brings together the cream of young instrumentalists from around the country and throws a bunch of strong conductors and teachers at them. The results are generally invigorating. On Saturday night at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, the young players joined forces with the young singers of the Wolf Trap Opera in an all-American concert that had some remarkable strengths, though not always where you might expect.

Read the complete review in The Washington Post.
