Summer Programs

Overview Summer Programs

The MusicianShip’s Summer Program is a multidisciplinary initiative that includes marching band, choir, and dance ensembles as well as tracks in both music business and music media. Going from just 2 students in 2010, to about 200 students in 2018, we have created a versatile program that meets the needs of creative students across the District of Columbia. The programs serve youth ages 6 to 21 and culminate in a large end-of-summer showcase, “Dianne’s Recital”.

Summer 2019 Programs

The MusicianShip offers a range of programs for our students to get involved with to further develop them as musicians and young men and women in our society.
