Sunsets with a Soundtrack
Take a seat on the West Steps of the the United States Capitol and listen to the sounds of the U.S. Army Band. They perform for free in this location throughout the summer with a series they call Sunsets with a Soundtrack. These concerts, performed several times a week during the summer months, and are free to the public. Concerts start at 8 p.m., but show up at least an hour early if you want a really good seat. You won't get bored while you wait - people watching at the Capitol is a great pastime itself! Pack a picnic and eat while you wait, then relax and watch the sun go down as you listen to tunes from our national band. Check their website for dates.
