Tour of Library of Congress 

Friday, February 22nd @ 10:30 am
We will meet at the ground floor information desk.
 

One-hour walking tour of the historic Thomas Jefferson building to learn about its symbolic art and architecture. The docent will tell the story of the library, America’s oldest cultural institution: its history, collections, and services for Congress and the nation. We will also take a self-guided tour of a re-created,Thomas Jefferson’s library, which assembles 6,487 volumes that founded the Library of Congress, and learn how one of America’s greatest thinkers was inspired through the world of books. 

If there is interest, we may tour: The Legacy of George and Ira Gershwin. This is a permanent tribute to the brothers who helped provide a musical background to the glamour and sophistication of the 1920s and 1930s. The exhibition provides a wealth of materials that provide insight into their careers and personalities, including manuscript and printed music, lyric sheets and librettos, correspondence, paintings and drawings.

HARLEM QUARTET: GAME CHANGERS

Ilmar Gavilán, violin/Melissa White, violin/Jaime Amador, viola/Felix Umansky, cello


Saturday, March 30, 2019
at 8:00 pm
Dumbarton United Methodist Church 
3139 Dumbarton Street NW


Praised for its “panache” by The New York Times and hailed in the Cincinnati Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent,” the Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Their mission to share their passion with a wider audience has taken them around the world: from a 2009 performance at The White House for President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama, to a highly successful tour of South Africa in 2012 and beyond.
