Music by Candlelight
Dumbarton Concerts has presented chamber and jazz music in the heart of Georgetown since 1978. Join us for our 40th season as we present a stellar lineup of performers featuring the finest string quartets, brass quintets, Broadway singers and more! To celebrate our 40th year, we have three "Meet the Artist" events following the concert that will help us further our mission presenting chamber music and providing integrated arts education programming in the District of Columbia.
Saturday April 21, 2018 8 p.m.: The Music of Dumbarton
Join us for an original production featuring narration by folklorist Stephen Winick and performances by PostClassical Ensemble, with Music Director Angel Gil-Ordonez, and OCEAN Orchestra, featuring Jennifer Cutting.
From the traditional songs brought to Georgetown by Scottish immigrants to the famous neoclassical Dumbarton Oaks Concerto by Igor Stravinsky, journey through music history unique to our neighborhood and the Dumbarton name. This concert features 20 musicians!
Inner City-Inner Child:
Changing the way children think, learn, and grow
We also support early childhood education through our Arts Integration program, Inner City – Inner Child. Inner City – Inner Child targets low-income children ages 0-5, underserved families, early childhood educators and Child Development Centers in Washington, DC’s most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. By introducing teachers and children to the power of the performing arts and literature, ICIC helps improve the quality of early childhood education in the Nation’s Capital.
