The second of two local jazz festivals going on right now, this year's DC Jazz Festival features concerts at two of D.C.'s hottest new performance venues, The Hamilton and Howard Theatre, as well as more established institutions, from Bohemian Caverns to Sixth and I Historic Synagogue to the Phillips Collection. But possibly the most interesting concert takes place at the Kennedy Center, when an all-star lineup transforms classical compositions as jazz-inflected numbers, including Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 and Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2. Monday, June 4, at 7:30 p.m. Kennedy Center Concert Hall. Tickets are $20 to $65. Call 202-467-4600 or visit kennedy-center.org or dcjazzfest.org.
