Fodor's Review

In a Washington tradition, bands from the four branches of the armed services perform June to August on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol. Concerts usually include marches, patriotic numbers, and some classical music. Other performances take place at 8 pm from June to August, on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday nights at various locations throughout the Metro area. The Air Force celebrity series features popular artists such as Earl Klugh and Keiko Matsui on Sunday in February and March at DAR Constitution Hall.
