Thanksgiving is late this year so the holiday season is going to be accelerated. This weekend you might want to take advantage of absolutely nothing or maybe you will be dutifully prepping for the upcoming feast. If you are still looking to get out in the world than here are some options.
Tonight, Councilmember Allen’s (my boss) hosts a Ward 6 Public Safety meeting at Watkins Elementary School. The meeting aims to bring together neighbors and city officials to work on strategies to make our neighborhood safe for everyone. The meeting begins at 6:30. RSVPs are welcome.
Friday night, Enchant DC opens at Nationals Park. It claims to be the world’s largest Christmas Maze and Market and it’s also setting up shop in Seattle and St. Petersburg, Florida. If you are okay with getting on the Christmas train before Thanksgiving, I wish you great joy.
Saturday evening, violinist Leila Josefowicz performs a concert in the Coolidge Auditorium at the Library of Congress. Known for her passion for contemporary classical, also sometimes referred to as new music, she will be performing with her longtime recital partner John Novacek for a program of works by Stravinsky, Janáček, Adams, Knussen and Kurtág. The concert is at 8 p.m. and tickets are free.
Sunday, the Capital City Symphony performs at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. The concert, called Symphonic Flight, features works inspired by birds. There will be selections from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Respighi’s The Birds, Sibelius’s tone poem The Swan of Tuonela, as well as other selections. The concert begins at 5pm and tickets are $15-$25.

I usually take Thanksgiving week off, so enjoy the holiday!
