Cultural Calendar, January 2005

I miss many performances, simply because I never find out about them in time, forget about them, or forget to check in the first place. This is the first of, I hope, many (and increasing in completenes) cultural calendars at IONARTS. Where possible, links to ticket purchases are indicated... Performances colored in green are free of charge, and performances colored in dark green are free but require tickets.

Performances in bold are considered to be particularly noteworthy by IONARTS. Abbreviations are KC for Kennedy Center, TT for Terrace Theater (at the KC), Freer for the Freer and Sackler Galleries at the Smithsonian, NGA for the National Gallery of Art, and LOC for the Library of Congress. [I have added a couple events to Jens's list—CTD.]
