Summer Lecture Series 2017 Behind the Scenes at the National Gallery of Art: Music Programs

The Gallery’s oldest public program and the longest-running free concert series in Washington, DC, began on May 31, 1942, just over a year after the Gallery opened its doors. On July 30, Danielle DeSwert Hahn, head of music programs, gives a brief overview of the fascinating story of the music department, as well as a preview of what’s to come in the 76th season, which begins on September 23, 2017. Several short performances will be interspersed throughout the presentation.
