“On Tuesday, the program’s first day, the Juniper Trio — the NSO’s assistant principal oboe, Jamie Roberts; the Washington National Opera Orchestra’s principal bassoon, Joseph Grimmer; and the pianist Jamila Tekalli — played at the Hillcrest Children and Family Center, an organization devoted to behavioral health services. The performance was in a room so small that the 30-some listeners were seated only a couple of feet from the performers, and Tekalli had to put an electric keyboard on a corner table, with an electric pedal that kept inching away from her over the carpet. Yet it was a delightful and warm performance of short, engaging pieces, from a transcription from Verdi’s “La Traviata” through a gracious Terzetto by Theodore Lalliet to a Poulenc trio, all played with immediacy and conviction, and the listeners had broad smiles on their faces. You can’t ask for more.
