The 80 bus route drops you right at the door of the Kennedy center, very easy from downtown.

An outstanding beginning for Maestro Eschenbach's career in Washington. Superb chorus made the 9th a memorable event. The NSO has rarely sounded better. Red Velvet seat was fantastic, well worth the extra.
