Friends of the Kennedy Center est.1965

Nicole Robertson-Obas "I really enjoy being a Kennedy Center volunteer. Where else can you expose yourself to the world of the performing arts, meet interesting people, have fun, and be in the most beautiful center for performing arts in the world, all at the same time? Nowhere but the Kennedy Center!"
- Nicole Robertson-Obas, Festival/Event Volunteer

 Rauno Merisalu "As a first-time volunteer at the Kennedy Center, it was great to be a part of the Nordic Cool 2013 festival and share my cultural knowledge of Finland. For the amount of information I gave to the visitors, I learned at least twofold back - volunteering made this possible. I also loved learning about the free performances at the Millennium Stage. Every day of the year, visitors can attend these shows at no cost; during Nordic Cool, the performances featured music, theater, dance, and food from the Nordic countries, which was fantastic."
