A project of THE JOHN F. KENNEDY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
Join the celebration of FREE performances & educational activities by the National Symphony in Capitol Hill & the historic H St. Corridor.
Donate now to support In Your Neighborhood Capitol Hill/H St.
For 83 years the National Symphony Orchestra has been filling concert halls with unparalleled music, thrilling audiences with Brahms to Bach to Broadway.
But our music isn’t only in concert halls…it’s where you are.
That's why from January 7 to 13, 2014 the NSO will be calling Capitol Hill and H St. NE home, working directly with community partners to provide more than 30 FREE performances and educational activities. We are celebrating not only our love of classical music but also the community and pride right here in our unique neighborhoods. In Your Neighborhood provides free events in schools, community centers, churches, businesses, and performing arts venues throughout the area.
Become part of this important project by supporting the National Symphony Orchestra's first crowdfunding campaign.
Why crowdfunding? In Your Neighborhood can only provide free live music and education programs through the generosity of community leaders, local businesses, and our neighbors....and we still need your help!
When you donate, you'll be sharing the power of classical music with your own neighbors. In Your Neighborhood is a program developed and promoted in collaboration with the community. The schedule of events will reflect requests gathered from the community itself, with the assistance of partnering organizations.
And we'll be sure to recognize you as a donor and keep you updated by email as new exciting programs are added. And most of all...we'll look forward to seeing you in January!
From children's 'Instrument Petting Zoos' to performances in non-traditional venues, In Your Neighborhood redefines what it means to go to the symphony. These free events are community-inspired and community-located in unexpected places where symphony musicians don't usually play. With In Your Neighborhood, experience free classical music in your own backyard, right in your neighborhood.
Get involved. Tweet us at @kencen and spread the word through Facebook. Plan to join us in January. Contribute what you are able. With your help, In Your Neighborhood Capitol Hill/H St. will become as vibrant and unique as Washington, D.C.'s neighborhoods.
