Local news: Library of Congress announces 2010-2011 concert season

By David Malitz

The Library of Congress today announced details for its 85th anniversary concert season, which is the usual diverse collection of free shows ranging from classical to jazz to folk with some welcome nods to experimental music thrown in.

A quick glance at the schedule reveals a few can't-miss events. On Oct. 21 renowned rock writer Greil Marcus will give a presentation, "Sam McGee’s Railroad Blues and Other Versions of the Republic.” On Nov. 20 free jazz trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith performs with his Golden Quartet. And on March 10 Tyondai Braxton, who recently departed from experimental rock titans Battles, will perform with Wordless Music Orchestra.

The full 2010-2011 schedule can be found here. All shows take place in the Coolidge Auditorium and are free but tickets are required.
