Washington DC AIDSwalk attracts interesting stage, music performances
On Saturday, October 3, Washington DC and the Whitman Walker Clinic and other sponsors held the annual AIDS Walk at Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue. The walk itself is shorter than it was ten years ago.
A group called “CSDC” performed rap dances on the outdoor stage. Curiously, the audience was told not to record video of the group, dressed in purple and yellow outfits, somewhat resembling the “X-Faction” at Town DC.
But at Federal Triangle Metro, nearby, there was a street trumpet player, playing hymns (like "Amazing Grace") to recorded organ music, with some impressive volume, carrying all around the outdoor patio areas of the Ronald Reagan Center on Pennsylvania Avenue.
