WASHINGTON (AP) - Organizers say the National Symphony Orchestra's annual Labor Day concert has been moved from the West Lawn of the Capitol to the Kennedy Center because of the weather.

The concert begins Sunday at 8 p.m. at the center's Eisenhower Theater. It's free to the public.

The symphony will perform patriotic classics as well as highlights from Stephen Flaherty's "American River Suite" and "Casey at the Bat" with narration by actor Michael John Casey.

The Labor Day Concert has been a tradition since 1979.
