Home City

The world-renowned Kennedy Center Concert Hall is located in the nation's capital on the shore of the Potomac River. It humbly rises from the landscape of the historic city, with beauty and elegance. Washington, D.C. is home to many historic and important buildings and monuments that play an important role in our nation's history. And although the Kennedy Center Concert Hall didn't play a significant role in our country's founding, it plays a major role in today's world, bringing culture and art to the people of the United States. It is fulfilling the wish of the late John F. Kennedy who didn't live to see many of his aspirations come to fruition.

Washington, D.C. is full of history and culture. But it is also home to some of the most successful sports franchises in the history of sports. D.C. is one of only 12 cities in the US to have all four men's professional sports genres represented. The city is home to the Washington Wizards of the NBA, the Washington Capitals of the NHL, the Washington Nationals of the MLB and the Washington Redskins of the NFL. There's never a dull moment in this city.


Seating Layout

The state-of-the-art Kennedy Center Concert Hall has the capacity to entertain more than 2,400 patrons at the same time. There are several seating options for those who come to watch a Broadway show, a symphony performance or a famous ballet, and there are no bad seats. The concert hall has two tiers of seating, an orchestra level and an orchestra level.

And while the seats closest to the stage will get you a slightly better view of the performers on stage, the upper levels and the sections further back inside the theater give you breathtaking views of the intricate and historic paintings that adorn the walls of the theater. And with heavy, luxurious fabrics both on your seat and on stage, you will get the royal experience with every show.


Trivia

The Kennedy Center Concert Hall has a long and storied history, and was the site of many amazing moments in entertainment history. The hall is designed to mirror European concert halls and contains 11 vividly beautiful crystal chandeliers, which were a gift from Norway. These massive and beautiful structures were repositioned several years after their installation in order to provide a clearer view of the stage.

In the late 1990s, the concert hall underwent a massive renovation that included the addition of an acoustical canopy, amazing new seating options and other high-tech improvements. And in 2012, the concert received another improvement with the addition of a pipe organ. This large and powerful instrument was built by the famous Canadian organ builder Casavant Freres. There are only a few organs like this in the world, and the instrument contains details that are specific only to the organ that is housed in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.
