September 1, 2020 The Schlesinger lit in Red.

On  September 1, 2020 The Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center of the Northern Virginia Community College – Alexandria Campus  and the Ernst Community Cultural Center of the Annandale Campus joined a national movement called #wemakeevents #redalertsrestart.

Both event venues were lit bright RED  from Sun Down to Sun Up.

The goal of the #redalertrestart event was to bring attention to  the profound impact of the Covid-19  pandemic on the live events industry. To learn more please visit the website
