Busboys and Poets Classical Music Black History Month School Benefit
February 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$50.00
Only about 4% of musicians in U.S. orchestras are persons of color, and as a minority-majority institution, Duke Ellington School of the Arts, a DCPS magnet school, is positioned to prepare students from all communities and backgrounds to further their musical education in conservatories, and to work in orchestras and in the music industry. In honor of Black History Month, join the Parents Group of the Instrumental Music Department for a night of classical music performed by talented student musicians in strings and piano. Tickets are $50 and include dinner and a drink. Meet some wonderful students, hear classical music and support this great public school. No tickets sold at the door, advanced sales only!
