John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
While national parks, many federal offices and museums remain closed, some essential government services continue to operate.
High demand for tickets to Broadway’s hit musical “The Book of Mormon” has been stressing the Kennedy Center’s website in recent weeks.
The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is planning its first major expansion since it opened in 1971 as a “living memorial” to President John F. Kennedy, with new features including pavilions to house rehearsal halls and classrooms, a memorial garden and a floating stage on the Potomac River.
From the artistry of Joseph Kalichstein to the verve of Anne-Sophie Mutter to the unique sounds of Dali Quartet, classical music performances this fall are as dynamic as the changing leaves.
