AN OCCASIONAL COMPILATION OF FREE INTELLECTUAL AND CULTURAL EVENTS easily available to us in Cleveland Park.
How fortunate we are that so many outstanding cultural events are not only free, but are also relatively easily accessible by bus and metro. In continuing to list these events I depend primarily on four venues: Politics and Prose Bookstore, the Library of Congress, the National Archives and films at the National Gallery of Art.

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".
