Despite Covid’s hurdles, US orchestras find joy in music

The National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) will rehearse the show as musicians resume their live performances as they navigate the Covid-19 rule turmoil. At the beginning of 2020, NSO was planning its first international tour with conductor Gianandrea Noseda. Instead, a coronavirus pandemic forced the ensemble out of the concert hall of the Kennedy Center, the capital of the United States, for 18 months. “I enjoy presents,” says Noseda. “I’m here, and now it’s great, it’s a gift for being here.”
