Chihuly: Sand and Fire (A Kennedy Center Digital Stage Original)
In the fall of 2017, the Kennedy Center announced the re-opening of the Terrace Theater, which included a brand new chandelier created by renown artist Dale Chihuly specifically for the space. Titled "Amber Icicle and Split Leaf Chandelier" the work was commissioned by the Center with support from JoAnn McGrath and the Highland Street Foundation. The original design brings together in a chandelier for the first time two of Chihuly's nature-inspired forms, icicles and split leaves, in an amber and garnet work of art.

The National Symphony Orchestra performs Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man."

The name of the piece was inspired in part by a speech given by U.S. Vice President Henry Wallace. Part of JFKC: A Centennial Celebration of John F. Kennedy, inspired by five enduring ideals often ascribed to JFK: Courage, Freedom, Justice, Service, and Gratitude. Subscribe to The Kennedy Center! http://bit.ly/2gNFrtb
