Washington Performing Arts announced today its newest community-focused program: Mars Arts D.C. Concert Series at Songbyrd.
The four-part series showcases a wide array of local artists and musical styles, ranging from soulful brass playing to folk singing and more.
Mars Arts D.C. Concert Series at Songbyrd launches on Wednesday, March 2 at Songbyrd Music House in Northeast D.C., with subsequent performances on April 13, May 18, and June 22; all at 7pm.
The concerts are being offered free-of-charge, but advanced registration is required.
Following the ethos of past Mars Arts D.C. programming, the concert series at Songbyrd provides local artists a new platform and a support team to share their art with a wider audience.
