On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The District is home to several concert series that have served up free summer music to audiences here for decades. Some of them are struggling to hold onto the audiences they built long ago – or to navigate all the organizational challenges the concerts require. We explore the landscape for free summer music in D.C., and what the concerts at places like Fort Dupont have contributed to the fabric of the city.
