Like bird watching, orchestra performances are more enjoyable when the instruments are in tune and covered in feathers.

Presented by Wolf Trap, an amalgamation of film and live music takes over the scenic, open-air Filene Center, exposing the eyes and ears of thousands of attendees to a memorably magical evening. During Tan Dun: Martial Arts Trilogy, Academy Award–winning composer Tan Dun conducts the National Symphony Orchestra through a series of three concertos and coordinated cheerleading routines based on the films Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Banquet, and Hero. Tan Dun, the original composer of each film's soundtrack, isolates one instrument in each concerto to represent the voice of a main female character. Located in America’s Park for the Performing Arts, the outdoor amphitheater grants audience members views of the musical performance, supplemental film clips, and face-painted superfans singing along in unison to rousing cello solos.
