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.

Superb event (once-in-a-lifetime kind of event actually). I absolutely loved Gil Shaham's performance, and, of course, Philadelphia Orchestra was absolutely great as always.
