Let the Music Play!

We perform a series of free, family-friendly concerts throughout year, and hold a very popular annual Holiday Sing-Along that has been featured in the Washington Post. We also perform at neighborhood events, such as arts festivals, salutes to veterans, and Halloween gatherings; and we make music accessible to all by visiting senior homes and food banks. We play music people love to hear, and our 30 band members love to play -- Broadway, movies, jazz, patriotic, and classic band music.

Several times a year we host Come Play With Us Nights, providing a musical space for musicians to share the joys of playing. There are no auditions -- we are open to everyone. Several of our members are returning to playing with an ensemble after years of not performing. Some are home-schooled and other students not able to participate in organized bands. We also attract professional musicians, looking for more opportunities to perform. Our band members include teachers, small business owners, service members, lawyers, rocket scientists, housewives, retirees, construction workers, engineers, diplomats, Uber drivers, and other professions.

We are led by the very gifted Mike Evans, who has elevated the band to new artistic heights. Our well-attended concerts are often broadcast live on social media. We also have one of the largest music libraries for a community band in America, thanks to a donation by our late conductor, John Pickerel. We are the proud caretakers of his private collection, which we share with other bands and schools so they can enjoy the music, too.
