Jazzfest Jazzes Up Georgetown At Historic Tudor Place

June 4, 2015

DC Jazzfest’s Jazz in the Hoods kicks off at Tudor Place June 10, 2015  at 6:00 pm (doors open 5:30) -- with a performance by the James King String Duo.

In its 199 years, safe to say, Tudor Place has hosted more chamber music than jazz, so the show augurs a fresh blend of DC cultural assets old and new. The audience likewise brings together diverse DC constituencies. 

See event details on Tudor Place calendar and on Jazzfest’s site.
