Today’s weather forecast doesn’t exactly scream outdoor concert, but neither rain, nor thunder, nor obscene humidity can keep Jazz in the Garden from its appointed slot. The free concert series kicks off its 10th season this evening at 5:30pm with jazz vocalist Leslie Summey. The concert will take place in the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden, though if the nasty forecast holds, Ms. Summey will be singing in the Pavilion Café. Don’t worry – sangria is still on the menu this year, and will be served whether the concert is indoors or out.
If you can’t make it tonight, the rest of this summer’s lineup is looking fabulous, with a little something for everyone.
