Live from the Mansion
Live from the Mansion is a virtual concert series that brings inspiring music and insightful conversation together in the Mansion at Strathmore. Each week, host Christylez Bacon joins us for live performances in a variety of genres and helps us get to know some of the best artists from the DC area—all from Strathmore’s renowned Artist in Residence program. Tune into Strathmore’s Facebook page Wednesdays at 7:30pm to catch the premiere of each episode.
Strathmore’s Virtual Programming is supported by AARP Maryland.
If you do not have a Facebook account, you can still view the Live from the Mansion performances. When they go live on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm, you will see a live video on Facebook here, no login required. We suggest clicking on this link a few minutes before 7:30pm and refreshing the page so you can join us when the performance starts at 7:30pm.

A powerhouse vocalist and sensitive songwriter, Cecily’s impassioned live performances and vocal style have been compared to Brandy and Corinne Bailey Rae but she has a depth all her own. Accompanied by Drew Kid on the keys, Cecily treats us to an evening of vintage-tinged soul, jazz, and R&B tunes.
