Performance Capital – Washington, D.C. Music Tour

Our Washington, D.C. music tour offers students the opportunity to perform and participate in workshops while exploring our nation’s capital.  Students will participate in three performance workshops and attend a show at the world-class John. F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a living memorial to our 35th president. A visit to the Atlas Performing Arts Center highlights its mission to bring people together through the arts.  The musical experience is complemented with visits to Washington, D.C.’s most enduring music concerts and memorials along the National Mall, its exceptional museums, the politico Capitol Hill, and the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.
