We are so fortunate to have many opportunities to experience live performances by world-class artists here in the DC area, and this week provides two great choices:
The Choir of the Sistine Chapel -- also known as the "Pope's Choir" -- performs a rare US concert this Wednesday, September 20, at the Basilica, at 6pm. More information here. The event is free, but seating is first-come, first-served. For more on the Sistine Chapel Choir, watch this video: https://youtu.be/lV5KBBGdTTU
Opera in the Outfield, a live simulcast of an opera being performed by Washington National Opera at Kennedy Center, takes place this Saturday, September 23, beginning at 5pm at Nats Park. This year's opera is Verdi's AIDA. See the video here. The event is free, and the opportunity to enjoy this great baseball stadium and opera at the same time is really extraordinary!
We hope you get out this week and experience live music!!
