Music in Washington DC

Listening to music while networking: Unless they are music haters, Washingtonians like to kill two birds with one stone. The "Embassy Series," which was founded in 1994, is a series of concerts taking place in the many embassies. These events not only present opportunities for cultural exchange but also for the exchange of business cards. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a cultural multi purpose building, has hosted free concerts every night since 1997, featureing musicians from all 50 states. Another phenomenon which is quite unusual for the United States: The museums of are largely financed by public means, and these museums also offer concerts on a regular basis. Furthermore, D.C. has become a stronghold of avant-garde music. The capital of the U.S., geographically on the border to the rather conservative South, has shed the image of a culturally backwards politician's hub over the past decades.
