While the Governmental Affairs Conference in DC the last week of February is normally a time for speeches and lobbying, there is also a diverse range of cultural opportunities available. The following are just some of the highlights for visitor to the city:

At the Smithsonian on Sat Feb 21, a choice of three all-day seminar programs:

  • Leonard Bernstein-Reaching all the Notes
  • In the Footsteps of St. Paul
  • Meet Chef Christopher Clime at Ceiba: meal included

A partial list of live theater choices include:

Looking Over the President’s Shoulder—Ford’s Theater
Allegro, the Rogers and Hammerstein musical at the Signature Theater
Henry IV, part I, at the Shakespeare Theater
Capital Steps, the musical political satire at The Ronald Reagan Building
The Opera Comique at the Kennedy Center
1984 at the Catalyst Theater on Capital Hill
Cecilia Bartoli in concert on February 22 at the Kennedy Center

In addition to the wonderful permanent collections at all the museums in town are the following special exhibitions:

Churchill and the Great Republic from the Churchill archives at the Library of Congress, Thomas Jefferson Building
American Paradigms: David Opdyke and Lane Twitchell at the Corcoran Gallery of Art
Mark Rothko, a selection of his abstract paintings from the Gallery’s collection
Verrocchio’s most famous sculpture of David at the Gallery’s West Building
Photographs from National Geographic at the Museum of Natural History

The selections above are less than a tenth of all the cultural opportunities. So plan to have fun while making your political contacts.

Don’t forget on Tuesday, Feb 24 at 07:45 AM the Men’s National Chorus will provide a 20 minute opening concert to that day’s general session at the Hilton’s convention center, in the main ballroom.
