Artist in Residence: ALEX HAMBURGER - Jazz flutist & vocalist
Wed. April 27, 2022 | 8pm
DC native Alex Hamburger began studying classical flute at age 7, finetuning her improvisation skills while sitting in on her father’s gigs, and being a part of Paul Carr’s Jazz Academy of Washington. She mixes her rich voice with the light and graceful sound of the flute and her talents have taken her all over the world.
THE ENGLISH CHANNEL & BILLY COULTER BAND: AN EVENING OF BRITISH & AMERICAN ROCK
Sat. May 7, 2022 | 8pm
Celebrating classic rock from both sides of the pond, this show features blistering covers of ’60s and ’70s British Invasion artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, and The Moody Blues as well as heartland heroes Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and Johnny Cash. This is the first show ever to feature both bands of Potomac, MD-native siblings Julie Quarles and Billy Coulter.
Artist in Residence: TAISHA ESTRADA- Singer-songwriter
Wed. May 11 & 25, 2022 | 8pm
Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Taisha Estrada grew up with grandparents who felt a strong devotion to la patria, their homeland. Her style, which blends Latin styles with jazz, R&B, and pop, is comparable to artists such as Omara Portuondo, Elis Regina, Natalia LaFourcade, and iLe. Lyrically, she is heavily influenced by the sensory experience of the Caribbean, and her work explores the beautiful and mystifying bond between humanity and the earth.
Estrada’s residency is generously sponsored by Hope Eastman and Allen Childs, Margaret McDowell, & Victoria J. Perkins
Sat. May 28, 2022
WoCo Fest 2022: AMAZE, a daylong music festival produced by Boulanger Initiative and co-presented by Strathmore, highlights women composers and all gender marginalized composers through performance, education, and commissions.
