Please join me and the Washington Performing Arts on Wednesday, November 19 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. as we host "Politics and Arts: A Jam Session in the Wilson Building."  The event will showcase local musicians and also provide musicians from different genres and backgrounds with an opportunity to network and share their own passion for the arts. Special performances of the night will include SynchroniCity, Roof Beams, and for an added bonus a dance selection by SerendibDance.  

This spectacular event will be the third in a series of arts events that I have hosted. The events are used as an opportunity to showcase the thriving arts community and also serve as a continuing effort to provide community engagement opportunities at the John A. Wilson Building.  Prior events have been held in my office but I wanted to expand the event to welcome the arts community and members and staff of the D.C. Council.  The event will be held on the first floor of the John A. Wilson Building (foyer) and will consist of a "mix and mingle" with light refreshments followed by a program with local musicians.

My last event, an "Evening of Poetry" showcased D.C.'s artistic youth with selections from the D.C. Scores, Free Minds and the D.C. Youth Slam Team who won first place at the Brave New Voices youth poetry slam contest. To see a recap of the event, click here.
