The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
While visiting some friends in Washington, DC this weekend, we swung by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to attend the free nightly performance and take in the views from the balcony that overlooks the Potomac River. Every day at 6 PM, the Kennedy Center offers a performance on the Millennium Stage in the beautiful Grand Foyer. This past Saturday night featured Charles Covington, Jr., a jazz pianist and professor of music at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. There was an impressive turnout – it was free, after all – and the performance was a nice way to start the evening. The Kennedy Center is an incredible space that can accommodate several performances at a time – in its opera house, theater lab, on the Millennium Stage, and in several smaller spaces. I hope some dance companies will be performing there the next time I’m in DC.
