A dynamic virtual platform designed to engage, inspire, and excite multiple audiences through impactful programming, is being sponsored by Events DC on its website.

The new platform, “GATHER,” includes exclusive DC Jazz Fest performances, a live concert by acclaimed harmonicist Frédéric Yonnet, and the Band with No Name, according to an Events DC press release.

“Today, more than ever before, is such an important time for people and communities to come together – and conventions and meetings, sports and entertainment have the power to do that – even virtually,” said Events DC President/CEO Gregory O’Dell. “GATHER is a prime example of creatively keeping our communities and industries together through this new dynamic, virtual programming platform to experience live and on-demand content.”

Other exclusive programming on the site will include live readings of iconic scripts in partnership with Film Independent; an intimate conversation with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum director Ellen Stofan and SiriusXM founder. A tribute to “Hidden Figure” Mary Jackson, the first African American female engineer at NASA, will also be featured, according to the press release.
