For so very long I have wanted to attend an event at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Sunday, we were fortunate to attend a concert held in the Concert Hall. The Concert Hall is the largest of the three main performance venues. It is where the Washington Symphonic Orchestra is based. The Opera House is where most theatrical performances are made and is the stage for the annual The Kennedy Center Honors.
The concert was a performance of Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, DC. The band that Erica plays in, Capital Pride Symphonic Band, also performed. It was a very poignant program. The performances were of the highest caliber.
Seeing and hearing a performance at the Kennedy Center is very special as the venue is comfortable and the acoustics are wonderful. It is amazing how much fuller and richer the sounds of the band were coming from this stage. I have written of the band in previous posts and am so glad that Erica is able to continue participating in an activity she loves so very much. Band has been a vital part of her life for a long while now.
Geoff, Bill and I attended the concert and scurried around finding some lunch. Thus, the opportunity for photos was limited. Besides, we were not allowed to take photos in the hall even though I got a couple (not very good). Here are two I took outside the Concert Hall in the Hall of Nations.
I wish we would have had more time to explore the Center. I was somewhat underwhelmed but not disappointed if that makes any sense. I look forward to visiting again.
