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.

The Messiah was a great way to get in the mood for Christmas! The Kennedy Center was very accommodating to those us of that were stuck in horrendous traffic.

The orchestra, soloists and chorus did a good job, but the Beecham/Goossens 1959 version of this piece should be relegated to the realm of historical artifacts and never be preformed in public again (except for some interested musicologists).

Good Morning. I bought these tickets as a gift for my parent's anniversary. They couldn't get to the event unfortunately due to a bomb threat in the area. They weren't able to get anywhere near the Concert venue. I'd love to hear about any...continued
