The Washington Conservatory 2016-17 Concerts & Master Classes

The Washington Conservatory is proud to offer two concert series to the public.

Our Professional Concert Series features a traditional concert format featuring outstanding guest artists and faculty of the Washington Conservatory presented in the sanctuary of Westmoreland Congregational Church (Western Ave. at Massachusetts Ave., the border of the District of Columbia and Bethesda, MD).

Our new Conservatory Casual Concerts Series features both classical and other genres of music performed by faculty of the Washington Conservatory of Music in an informal setting at our Glen Echo Park recital room. Sit back, relax, stretch out on floor pillows, or enjoy a treat you've picked up at Praline's while you enjoy the music. Lasting about an hour, our informal setting encourages musicians to chat with the audience during the performance.

All concerts are offered as a community service on a pay-as-you-can basis.
