The Washington Conservatory 2018-19 Concerts & Master Classes

The Washington Conservatory is proud to offer the following concerts and events to the public.

Our Conservatory Concerts 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 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.

Our Friday at Seven series features outstanding faculty members of the Washington Conservatory performing one-hour casual concerts to celebrate the end of the week with music in the sanctuary of Westmoreland Congregational Church.

Our Chopin Salon Conversations include demonstrations and performances by both Stanislav Khristenko and select Washington Conservatory students - each based on a specific Chopin genre at our Glen Echo Park recital room.

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