While I am no longer able to attend many of the free cultural events in the city, I still like to know what's going on and recommend them to others. I'll of course list events that are of primary interest to me and do not get the publicity of the more flamboyant events.
How privileged we are to have so much culture available to us FREE in our city.

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".
