This weekend: Corey Harris, the Smithsonian Chamber Players, and a roomful of weimaraners

August 24, 2006
The Smithsonian American Art Museum is doing more than its fair share to keep ears awake in DC this weekend.  Supercool blues slide guitarist Corey Harris will be appearing at the museum's McEvoy Auditorium on Friday at 5 pm (it's free, and he's phenomenal, so prepare for a mob scene), and on Saturday at 3 music historian Michael Lasser will be giving a talk on 19th Century American song, with musicians there to provide examples (sorry to be so vague -- that's all the info they're giving out).

                                 William Wegman
We'll definitely be there on Sunday, when the Smithsonian Chamber Players (James Stern, violinist; Kenneth Slowik, cellist; and Audrey Andrist, pianist) will be performing piano trios by Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn, also in McEvoy Auditorium at 3 pm. 

If you go, get there early and check out the big William Wegman retrospective  ("William Wegman -- Funney/Strange") -- which will keep you smiling hours after you've left.

Weimaraners rule.
