The Loboda Studio, our main performance hall at Brucker Hall, will undergo a facelift this summer, so our traditional Thursday night Brucker Hall Summer Concert Series has not been scheduled. We will still give weekly performances on Fridays on the west side of The U.S. Capitol. Much will depend on when the work gets completed, and we will announce additional performances back at Brucker Hall as they become possible.
West Side of the U.S. Capitol, Washington, DC
The U.S. Army Band continues its annual tradition of presenting free concerts of Classical Pops, Big Band, Rock, and Patriotic music on the West Side of the U.S. Capitol with the series we like to call: Sunsets with a Soundtrack. The public will be allowed to place lawn chairs on the stone terrace in front of the band on the West Side of the Capitol, and on the West Lawn (when available). Food is permitted; however, NO alcohol or glass bottles are allowed.
Concerts are weekly on Fridays at 8:00 p.m. from June 2 through August 25. Note: there will be no performance on Friday, June 30 or Friday, August 18.
These performances are FREE and no tickets are required; however, group reservations, for groups of 15+ are recommended. Please email Jen Maly: firstname.lastname@example.org to make a group reservation.
