About The Kennedy Center - Concert Hall
Renovated in 1997, the Concert Hall is the largest performance space in the Kennedy Center, seating 2,442. This state-of-the-art facility, which originally opened in 1971, sets new standards for accessibility and sound with a high-tech acoustical canopy, accessible locations on every level, and new seating sections (onstage boxes, chorister seats, and parterre seats). The 11 famous Hadelands crystal chandeliers, a gift from Norway, are repositioned to clear the field of view from the Second tier center. Behind the stage you will note the organ, which has 4,144 pipes and is a gift from the Filene Foundation of Boston. Its console is portable, and all of the pipes are functional.Read MoreRead Less

The weather was warm. I wore dress/heels. Please don't insult performers by coming in shorts(OMG!!) or jeans. They have spent their lives creating a wonderful experience for your evening and you need to honor them by dressing UP!.NSO: Eschenbach Conducts Saint-Saëns, Reynolds dress • Oct 07 2013 star this tip starred
The weather was Lovely weather. But the weather has really nothing to do with the show.. I wore A nice dress. One always feels much better being a little dressed going out. Sweaters or flip flops are for the beach, not the Kennedy Center..NSO Pops: Cirque de la Symphonie dress • Sep 20 2013 star this tip starred
