Isn’t it wonderful meeting great artists up close and personal, off the bandstand? That’s the kind of once-in-a-lifetime opportunity our Meet The Artist events provide to our community. Our conversations in 2015 with NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette, internationally-renowned drummer (and DC native) Billy Hart, the amazing Colombian harpist Edmar Casteneda, and the peerless Turtle Island String Quartet were delightful for our audiences, and those were just some of the participants in this year’s Meet The Artist series. Whether you want to learn more about your favorite artist or simply gain greater insights into the mysteries of playing this great music and the creative process, our Meet The Artist events are for you!…" Please consider a year-end donation to help us continue to offer these conversations free of charge.
