October 15 ~ Brilliant Young Pianist to Present Free Concert

Sun., Oct. 15 (4pm): The First Baptist Church of Washington (16th & O Sts.) will be presenting a recital in the church’s magnificent sanctuary featuring Washington, DC concert pianist Christopher Schmitt who will showcase the church’s Steinway concert grand piano with a program featuring Beethoven’s Sonata “Les Adieux,” Rachmaninoff’s Etudes Nos. 5 and 8 and Prelude No. 4, and Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit.

Characterized by the  Washington Post in a November 215 music review as “carefully colored” and “sensitive” –- clearly borne out by listening to the Rachmainoff Etude Tableaux performance clip here — Schmitt performs in recitals and with chamber ensembles throughout the Washington area and around the country.

Admission is free; contributions will be accepted. Valet parking will be available at the 16th and O Streets entrance to the sanctuary. For more information call 387-2206.

News We Can Use

The editor welcomes the receipt of information about community happenings, such as church-sponsored events, neighborhood and block association activities, public meetings dealing with neighborhood issues, and other events of a non-commercial nature. These may be emailed to us at

Pleasant, Columbia Heights; Dupont, Scott, Thomas & Logan Circles; Mt. Vernon Square/Pennsylvania Quarter, Shaw, U Street.

Publication is always the second Friday of the month and deadline for submission is always the first Friday, although every effort is made to include later-received submissions on a space available basis. Notices of selected events received following publication may be included during the ensuing current issue; again, on a space basis.
