For more than 50 years, Washington Performing Arts has created opportunities that connect community and artists, in both education and performance. Washington Performing Arts embraces a broad spectrum of the performing arts, including classical music, jazz, gospel, contemporary dance and music, international music and art forms, and new work.  Dynamic education programs in the public schools and beyond are hallmarks of Washington Performing Arts, as are the Capital Arts Partnership programs, Embassy Adoption Program, the Mars Urban Arts Initiative, and two resident gospel choirs.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet a remarkable educator and cheer his students on in making music together!
