Music Director James' comments: Our season finale will be a little different this year. There will be four opportunities to hear this concert. First, our extraordinary Principal Clarinetist Roger Garza will perform the timeless Weber Concertino. Then we will have a fun time with "Tribute to the Beatles,” a John Williams Signature Edition arranged by Bruce Healey. Finally, by joining with our partners The Alexandria Singers, we will have a Rodgers and Hammerstein festival. This will be a great way to start your summer.
Church of the Epiphany is located 1/2 block from the Metro Center 13th street exit. Discount parking for $9 is available in the Colonial Parking garage next to the church.
