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.

Leon Bates is considered one of America’s great pianists and has performed on major concert stages around the world including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Cleveland Symphony, and the New York Philharmonic. Michelle Cann is a piano virtuoso who brings the concert stage to life with programs that juxtapose music celebrating her African-American/Caribbean heritage with classical masterworks. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, Michelle has been heard nationwide on the popular radio show, “From the Top.” The Duo will perform Danzon Cubana by Aaron Copland, An American in Paris by George Gershwin and Symphonic Dances of West Side Storyby Leonard Bernstein.

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.
