After years of planning, organizers of a proposed National Music Center announced that they are moving to the former Carnegie Library and starting performances, classes and exhibitions this spring.
The center signed a three-year lease with the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., to use most of the landmark building at Massachusetts and New York avenues NW for its programs. The Historical Society restored the building for $24 million and previously shared it with the City Museum, a short-lived attempt to tell Washington's story. The museum opened in 2003 but closed two years later, largely because of low attendance.
