This Labor Day weekend offers lots of fun but how about something Free and family oriented?? The National Symphony Orchestra, led by Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke, presents its annual, free Labor Day Weekend Concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol on Sunday. This year the program will include music that highlights the American landscape, from Stephen Flaherty’s American River Suite to the little town of Mudville in Casey at the Bat, narrated by Michael John Casey. Concluding the concert will be a number of selections from the Great American Songbook performed by composer, pianist, and singer Tony DeSare.
Sunday, September 2, 2012 at 8 p.m., Free event, no tickets required. Gates open at 3 p.m., Open Rehearsal at 3:30 p.m. (No open rehearsal if concert is moved)
In case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the Eisenhower Theater, and the doors will open at 7:30 p.m., one half-hour before the performance.
Please call the NSO Summer Concert Hotline at (202) 416-8114 after 1 p.m. on Sunday to find out if the performance has been moved.
The National Park Service has said the fire was likely human caused, but that remains under investigation.
