Arlington, Virginia 22209 Map


As a part of its 10th Anniversary celebratory events, the Arlington Philharmonic will host an exclusive screening of the new documentary “Maestro” about storied conductor Paavo Jarvi on Thursday, February 11, 2016. An audience question and answer discussion with the film’s director and producer, David Donnelly will follow the screening.

Admission is $30 per person in advance and $40 at the door. Tickets may be purchased online by clicking the Maestro Movie Screening Event at the Arlington Philharmonic website www.arlingtonphilharmonic.org.

The event will be held at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theater, 1611 N. Kent Street, Arlington, VA 22209. The theater is metro accessible and has garage parking in the building. A reception with live music and light fare will begin at 6:00 pm and the film, which runs 81 minutes, will follow at 7:00 pm. Maestro is currently airing in Europe and Asia, but will not be released in the US until later in 2016.

A description of the documentary follows:
“For a period spanning two years, a film crew follows Grammy award-winning conductor Paavo Jarvi and an array of brilliant musicians as they perform to sold-out halls across the globe. The resulting footage captures the pressures of self-expression, the rush of performance, and above all, the power of a universal language. Maestro is an intimate, unprecedented glimpse into the life of a renowned conductor and a vibrant, contemporary portrait of the world of classical music.”

Today 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Free performance and “talkback” about little known historical injustice: the “Radium Girls,” teenage factory workers in the 1920s who were slowly poisoned while painting glow-in-the-dark watches with toxic radium. Told with powerful imagery, music, and dance. The “girls,” growing ill and seeking help, faced corporate greed and lies, a callous legal system, and complete disregard for their health and safety. Underlying it all was contempt for female workers. Despite these obstacles, six “Radium Girls” sued a leading radium company. Sponsored by League of Women Voters-Arlington and AAUW-Arlington. “Talkback” with author Ginny Mohler and Yorktown theater director Carol Cadby and social hour with refreshments.

Nate Silver, today’s most influential statistician and founder of the award-winning data website FiveThirtyEight, will join Tyler Cowen for a wide-ranging, intellectual dialogue as part of the Conversations with Tyler series.

Silver has been named one of the “World’s Most Influential People” by Time for his entrepreneurship in data journalism and astoundingly accurate method of predicting elections. Silver first gained national attention during the 2008 presidential election when he correctly predicted the results of the presidential winner in 49 states. In 2012, he predicted all 50 states.

Silver’s accomplishments in data analysis go beyond elections. A polymath, his interests vary from economics to sports to poker. Prior to FiveThirtyEight, he established his credentials as a baseball statistician and writer for Baseball Prospectus. Silver developed a widely acclaimed system called PECOTA, which forecasts the performance and career development of Major League Baseball players.

His book, The Signal and The Noise: Why Most Predictions Fail – But Some Don’t, is a New York Times bestseller and among the Wall Street Journal’s Best Nonfiction Books of 2012.

About Tyler Cowen

Cowen is a world-renowned professor of economics, co-author of the popular economics blog Marginal Revolution, co-founder of the award-winning online educational platform Marginal Revolution University, and chairman of the Board at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. Bloomberg Businessweek profiled Cowen as “America’s Hottest Economist,” Foreign Policy named Cowen as one of the “Top 100 Global Thinkers,” and an Economist survey counted Cowen as one of the most influential economists of the last decade.

About the Conversations with Tyler Event Series

The Mercatus Center’s Conversations with Tyler series brings world-class thought leaders to the Arlington campus of George Mason University to discuss how ideas, cutting-edge research, and applied economics can bring solutions to society’s most pressing problems.
