This listing of free cultural events is issued every Wednesday. The events are not only free they are usually easily accessible by metro. The events are often below the radar for many people and thus are often not well attended.
Regular readers may have noted that topics tend to emphasize my personal interests of biography and history, current world problems, theories of religion and all forms of music with an emphasis on swing and jazz.
Discussion and comments are welcomed

Special July 4th Concert
With such an outstanding program on Independence Day, I just had to break my summer silence by calling to your attention the program at the Washington National Cathedral, Monday, July 4 at 11 AM. This annual celebration has to be one of the most outstanding presentations in the nation with the Washington Symphonic Brass, the United States Navy Sea Chanters Ensemble and organists Benjamin Straley and Peter Conte. Thirty minutes preceding the program, there will be an outdoor brass echoing of music that promises to be outstanding. What a marvelous opportunity, especially those of us living in Cleveland Park and others communities surrounding the Cathedral at Massachusetts and Wisconsin Avenues Northwest, to make this day particularly meaningful.
And while at it, I'm tossing summer vacationing aside to do a bit of Ranting - https://www.ronlehkerrants.blogspot.com
Hope you will take a look at a couple of my "cultural concerns".
