“Excellent venue for live musical performances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This concert hall and arts center is on the Alexandria campus of the Northern Virginia Community College. You might think a concert hall associated with a community college would offer somewhat less than optimal facilities. In the case of the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, you would be very wrong indeed. The center is a high-end facility. As a concert hall, the Schlesinger Center is well engineered for hosting outstanding musical performances.

This concert hall is where the Arlington Symphony Orchestra (ASO) performs. ASO is a "local" orchestra that is truly world class. I have also attended dance exhibitions at the center.

Within the center is an art hall with exhibits that change several times throughout the year. I view the exhibits before or after concerts, or during intermissions. Usually, they represent the works of a single artist, which gives the viewer a chance to see the range of expression that artist undertakes.
