D.C.'s Different Drummers Capitol Pride Symphonic Band will present its Spring Concert - Dances! This festive, upbeat performance will feature selections by Mackey, Strauss, Ticheli and more!
The concert will be performed on Saturday, March 29th, 2014, at 7:30pm. The venue is the Columbia Heights Education Campus Auditorium, located at 3101 16th Street NW (Corner of 16th and Irivng NW), Washington, D.C. 20010. Public parking is available on the street, or in the nearby public lot behind the school (accessible via Hiatt Place NW). The venue is also Metro accessible, with the Green and Yellow lines (Columbia Heights Metro) 2 blocks away.
This will be a special evening as we pay tribute to music that makes us dance, while we also acknowledge and celebrate the last 6 years with CPSB Director, Joe Bello, in his last performance with the band. In honor of Joe's accomplishments with DCDD over the years, we will be joined by a very special guest conductor, 1st Lieutenant Shanti Nolan, with the US Air Force Band.
Admission for adults is $20, students/seniors is $10, and children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets will available online and from your favorite member of the band!
