Founded in 2004 by artistic director Richard Scerbo, Inscape Chamber Orchestra is pushing the boundaries of classical music in riveting performances that reach across genres and generations and transcend the confines of the traditional classical concert experience. With its flexible roster and unique brand of programming, this critically acclaimed, GRAMMY-nominated group of high-energy master musicians has quickly established itself as one of the premier performing ensembles in the Washington, DC, region and beyond.

BAMUTHI (Marc Bamuthi Joseph) is a curator of words, ideas, and protagonists. His bold, poetically driven work investigates social issues and cultural identity. He will present newly written verses to narrate Carnival of the Animals.
