Sunset Sessions at The Park
*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 07/05/2020
Experience great musicians from home with a series of virtual events broadcast from The Great Lawn at The Parks at Walter Reed. Sunset Sessions at The Parks presents a series of five musical performances by some of DC’s most renowned musicians.
Imani Grace: She’s headlined as a vocalist at venues such as the Apollo Theater and the Kennedy Center. We are honored to welcome Imani Grace back to the Great Lawn for a special solo performance that journeys through jazz, soul and gospel.
Beth Cannon: A self-described “guitar nerd” who teaches guitar and voice at DC’s own 7DrumCity, we are looking forward to her solo performance on the Great Lawn. Expect a range of solo guitar originals and covers, from blues to neoclassical.
James Zimmerman: Jazz scholar and renowned jazz vocalist James Zimmerman lives right here in Ward 4 near The Parks. His style is sophisticated and classic, a perfect serenade for an evening sunset session.
Marcelle Pena: One third of the trio “Manaca,” Marcelle is a DC-based vocalist that performs classic Brazilian bossa, samba, and jazz tunes by Tom Jobim, Elis Regina, João Bosco, and others.
Fifth performance: This artist will be announced soon! Check back for details.

- Sunday, May 10
