At 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 11, the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic will perform two works by American composers: William Grant Still’s “Symphony No. 1” — which incorporates blues progressions and rhythms characteristic of jazz and gospel — and Mark Edwards Wilson’s “Piano Concerto,” with soloist Thomas Pandolfi. The program also includes a piece by this year’s composition competition winner. Tickets to the concert, at the Church of the Epiphany, 1317 G St. NW, are $20 (free for age 18 and younger).
