The sensual vocals and poetic songwriting of Grammy-winning singer Mary Chapin Carpenter helped propel her 1992 country album Come On Come On to quadruple-platinum status. Since then, her beautiful music has become more socially and politically oriented, while also increasingly bringing in orchestral elements. Her latest album, Songs From The Movie, revisits tunes from her past, setting them to symphonic instrumentation evocative of a stirring film score. Now, you can see her play these compelling reinventions of her own with the National Symphony Orchestra. Learn More
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.NSO: Koh Plays Barber info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

This was a great event, excellent seats!!
Filled with hilarious sight gags and perfectly timed stunt work, Buster Keaton’s The General (1927) is an imaginative masterpiece of dead-pan comedy. This story of a brave but foolish Confederate train engineer doggedly pursuing his beloved locomotive (“The General”) and the woman he loves is generally regarded as one of the greatest of all silent comedies. Watch the entire classic silent film with the score performed live by the NSO and acclaimed organist Dennis James.
