Where is the recital taking place in Kennedy Center?
The prestigious Kennedy Center is located on the National Mall along with many other historic landmarks, such as the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the White House, and the Smithsonian Museums.
The Family Theater in Kennedy Center provides a new home for world-class performances for the nation’s youth and continues the Kennedy Center’s $125 million commitment to performing arts education for adults and children alike.
“This new venue expands the Kennedy Center’s ability to produce and present excellent works for young people,” said Michael Kaiser, former Kennedy Center President. The inauguration of the Kennedy Center’s state of the art 324-seat Family Theater facility in 2005 coincided with the 30th anniversary of the Kennedy Center’s youth oriented Performances for Young Audiences series.
