Folks in Washington, D.C. love good music.
From varied 6pm concerts at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, to world-class choral concerts at one of the many stunning churches in the area, to military bands performing at the memorials throughout the summer, the opportunities to hear and enjoy live music in our nation’s capital are endless.
In DC, the annual National Festival of the States concert series has been recognized since 1995, and runs concerts at venues throughout the DC metro area from January all the way through December. Under the NFS banner, music ensembles tour to the DC and receive recognition for their concerts that they would not be able to experience otherwise. From Music Celebration International’s reputation, DC residents are eager to hear MCI groups perform.
Whether an ensemble wants to perform in a massive Gothic or Neo-Byzantine Cathedral, a world class concert auditorium, a suburban concert hall, a major university’s music department or outdoors at one of the magnificent monuments, Washington, D.C. has it all. DC is the BEST town anywhere in America for a unique combination of concert sites AND sightseeing!
In 2013, all concerts conducted under the NFS banner will be part of the ongoing Civil War Sesquicentennial – most notably the pivotal anniversaries of the Battle of Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address.
Music Celebrations has developed tours for music ensembles to not only visit and perform in DC, but to visit nearby Gettysburg to conduct meaningful commemorative performances for the anniversary.
Peruse our site, check out our links on touring and performing in DC and Gettysburg as part of the National Festival of the States, and contact us if you direct or are part of an ensemble that would be interested in this opportunity.
