Fodor's Expert Review Coolidge Auditorium at the Library of Congress

Capitol Hill Music

Since its first concert, in 1925, the Coolidge has hosted most of the 20th and 21st centuries' greatest performers and composers, including Copland and Stravinsky. Today, the theater draws musicians from all genres, including classical, jazz, and gospel, and the hall continues to wow audiences with its near-perfect acoustics and sight lines. Concert tickets are free but must be ordered in advance through Ticketmaster. Because of the Library's security procedures, patrons are urged to arrive 30 minutes before the start of each event.
