There are two hilarious takes on the state of our politics, well-timed for the Presidential campaign, and our favorite pops orchestra presents two spirited and entertaining concerts. The holidays will be a little brighter this year with four wonderful concerts to ring in the season. Our performances are held in the state-of-theart Merchant Hall with its superb acoustics and intimate seating.

The Complete History of America (abridged): Election Edition!

Mock the Vote! Sunday, September 18 at 7 p.m.

Before you head to the polls to elect our 45th president, join us to “Mock the Vote” with the rocking and roasting local institution, The Capitol Steps. For more than 30 years, The Capitol Steps

have traveled the nation satirizing the most serious of subjects: politics. Founded by Hill staffers in 1981, their blend of humor and musical comedy leaves both sides of the aisle rolling in laughter. Absolutely no one is safe from their lampooning — from Barack Obama belting out a show tune, to Nancy Pelosi rocking out, to a graceful Chris Christie pirouetting through a classical ballet. The Capitol Steps presents renditions from their current review, including Present George W. Bush’s ballad “Jeb is Ready, He’s My Bother,” “If There Were No Rich Men” from Senator Bernie Sanders, and Senator Hillary Clinton’s “Deleter of the Facts.” No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet The Capitol Steps will prove that if you are not part of the solution, you’re probably running for President. “Its political satire brings chuckles…rave reviews… guffaws…and bipartisan grins all around.” (The Wall Street Journal) $46, $39, $28
