Saint Elizabeths Hospital Holds 4th Annual Summer Concerts

Concerts to be held every Tuesday ending August 31.

The Saint Elizabeths Hospital 4th Annual Summer Concert Series is in full swing with the next performance at 7 pm, Tuesday, June 22, featuring The Andalusians, a local rock band. Open to the public, the free concerts showcase a variety of music, including jazz, classical, Top 40 and much more. The concerts take place every Tuesday at 7 pm through August 31 on the Hospital grounds, 1100 Alabama Ave SE, near the Alabama Avenue Metro Station.

The summer concert series celebrates Saint Elizabeths pioneer role in music and dance therapy as a mechanism for healing and expression. More than 70 music therapists have been trained at the Hospital.    

“The concerts are fun events integrated with our treatment and recovery process”, said Dr. Patrick Canavan, Chief Executive Officer at Saint Elizabeths. “We want individuals in our care to enjoy with family and friends the kind of events they might attend after they are discharged.”
