On Friday from Memorial Day through Labor Day, local jazz groups perform to packed crowds in the sculpture garden from 5 to 9 pm. Listeners dip their feet in the fountain, sip sangria, and let the week wash away. From October to June free concerts by the National Gallery Orchestra and performances by visiting recitalists and ensembles are held in the West Building's West Garden Court on Sunday nights. Entry is first-come, first-served, with doors opening at 6 pm and concerts
starting at 6:30 pm. On Wednesday, free midday performances of classical music begin around noon. Also check out their film series.
