Premise: An occasional series featuring concerts from the nation's capital that, over the years, has showcased performers as diverse as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Elvis Costello and Steve Martin. As Nancy Reagan noted in the first program, `With the participation of public television, the East Room becomes a concert hall for the entire nation.'
