New year, new bucket list!

It’s time to say goodbye to 2020 (finally!) and HELLO to 2021! Although there’s still a lot to be done in the new year of course, it sure feels like it’s time for a fresh start.

From wonderful candlelit concerts to the newest bars coming to the District this upcoming year, these are some of the best happenings every Washingtonian should add to their bucket list. Here’s to things looking up in 2021!

1. Be inspired by Les Colombes the National Cathedral’s newest art installation

Created by German artist Michael Pendry, Le Colombes features over 1,000 origami doves, delicately arranged to float over the nave. Symbolizing hope and the Holy Spirit, Pendry’s installation has been brought to the National Cathedral in the hopes of bringing a feeling of optimism for 2021 after a challenging year.

2. Experience classical music in a whole new light at one of these stunning candlelit concerts

Calm your mind and experience classical music in a new light with these sensational concerts in some of Boston’s most magical locations. Simply known as “Candlelight,“ this concert series invites everyone to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere.
