Starting Friday, take a lunch break with Juilliard graduate Thomas Pandolfi as he pays tribute to Frederic Chopin at 1:15 p.m. in McNeir Hall on Georgetown’s main campus. The Georgetown University Music Program’s Friday Music Series features acclaimed artists in free concerts every Friday.
Also on the Georgetown campus, The SoCal VoCals, a collegiate a cappella group from the University of Southern California, stop at McNeir Auditorium at 9 p.m. as they tour throughout the U.S.
Saturday morning you can catch Eye Wonder: Photography from the Bank of America. The exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts features more than 100 photographs made between 1865 and 2004 that demonstrate how women have long embraced the subjectivity and quirkiness of the camera’s eye.
Saturday evening The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America presents a Spring Ball at Georgetown's historic Dumbarton House. Featuring live music for dancing in the elegant ballroom, a dessert buffet, gaming in the historic museum, and character re-enactors, join the community in period costumes or “after-five” attire to celebrate the beginning of spring.
Get your Sunday started with Poker for a Purpose at Georgetown’s Mie N Yu. The charitable Texas Hold 'em tournament starts at 4 p.m. and will feature prizes, a full brunch buffet and more.
