D.C.’s Different Drummers is a very active organization. Our multiple ensembles perform multiple engagements throughout the National Capital Region all through the calendar year. These activates require a lot of expenses, including rehearsal space, instrument rental and repair, advertising, insurance, and traveling expenses, to name but a few. Support from our community partners and donors is essential to the continued operation and growth of our organization.
D.C.’s Different Drummers is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. There are numerous options available interested patrons can support our organization. Your support empowers all members of our musical community to perform with PRIDE! We thank you for your generous contribution. See you at a performance soon!
