About:

As part of the 28th season in the Smithsonian at Little Washington Concert Series, renowned musician Kenneth Slowik returns to Little Washington Theatre. Mr. Slowik is artistic director of the Smithsonian Chamber Music Society and Curator of Musical Instruments at The Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

A highly-valued component of all concerts in the Smithsonian at Little Washington series is the commentary provided by Ken Slowik throughout the program. His remarks shed light on the glorious music and the life and times of the featured composers. In 2011, Mr. Slowik was the recipient of the Smithsonian Secretary’s Distinguished Research Lecture Award, and the remarks during the concerts at the Little Washington Theatre are generally an abbreviated version of the talk which precedes each of the concerts heard in Washington, D.C.
