Gospel Afternoon on the Hill - Live Performance and Film (Reservation required)

I want to post this because I thought a lot of members would be interested AND this looks like quite a good, new arts space in the District.  Again, this is part of the great Library of Congress Free Concert and Film series.  “Say Amen, Somebody” tells the uplifting story how gospel got its roots in America, focusing on two of the movement’s pioneers, Thomas A. Dorsey and Willie May Ford Smith. In addition, the sensational Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music, based in metropolitan Washington, DC, present a special performance which honors Gospel’s legacy with a contemporary spin.  I doubt we will be able to stay in our seats.

****It's free but you need to make a reservation WITH THE HILL CENTER for this.  I repeat the reservation here is not good enough.  Here's the link.  It actually takes some time to register your information, so be patient.  (Maybe that's the way they'll be assured that you are coming.) ****

Say Amen Somebody has received rave reviews all over the world.  It's a treasure of a film - Hailed as “terrific, joyous, funny, [and] unabashedly emotional” by film critic Roger Ebert.. Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music have performed at The White House and shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Shakira. As a pilot program with Hill Center, this event is part of the Library of Congress "Song of America" project.  It is located two blocks east of the Eastern Market Metro.

There should be interesting places to eat and drink (and sing) nearby afterward.  Again, here's the link to make your reservation.

    If anyone could use a ticket, message me here. I can email my confirmation to you. I have a pretty intense looming writing deadline and afraid I have to skip today.

    I will try to get there by 12:30. Since it's sold out, we should probably go in by close to 12:45. It's a new venue for us, so I'll try to wait in an obvious place there. number is[masked]-7494. Most times, you can get into these free, sold out events because people reserve and don't come.

    I'm going to be driving to Mr. Pleasant afterwards and would like to bring my car rather than take Metro. Do anyone know if there's on street parking?

    February 19, 2013

    • Becky R.

      There is street parking but it's hard to find. Particularly on Saturdays. Be prepared to park blocks from the event as you may have to.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
