Every day, The Kennedy Center hosts free concerts at 6 p.m.  The Patrick Henry High School Chamber Orchestra performed on the Millennium Stage March 27, 2017.  Many families made the trip to hear the 45 minute concert.  It was broadcast live online for the world to see.  To watch a clip of the students performing, click here
