The theatre has been re-imagined to place the artists on a 30 x 24-foot stage extension built over the orchestra-level seating area. An invited audience of 40 will sit in physically-distanced pairs on the stage facing the interior of the hall.

Passes to view the concert will be available for $15 beginning September 18 here. Future performances featuring members of the National Symphony Orchestra, Dover Quartet, Escher Quartet, and Jazz Gallery All-Stars are now on sale via the Kennedy Center website.
