  • Alexandria Symphony Orchestra
    When Kim Allen Kluge took over as music director of the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra in 1987, the outfit was made up of a small but enthusiastic group of community musicians. Sensing the potential of the orchestra, Kluge augmented the ensemble with freelancer virtuosos, quickly establishing the ASO as the premier professional symphony in northern Virginia. Today, the collective performs in the elegant Schlesinger Concert Hall on the Northern Virginia Community College campus, which makes for an acoustically friendly venue and a convenient base of operations for pranks on the Dean.

  • Alexandria Harmonizers Present: A Ca Challenge
    People usually go to the Great Wall of China to marvel at its expanse. The Alexandria Harmonizers went there to sing. And that's just one of the many impressive destinations where the men's a cappella group has performed. In its nearly 70-year history, the ensemble has shared signature four-part harmonies at the White House, Carnegie Hall, and Cologne Cathedral. But you don't need to be a president or employee of the month to hear the choir sing—its members will gladly regale listeners at private parties and events.

  • American Dance Institute
    They started as a dance school, but in 2010, the American Dance Institute transformed. The shift resulted from the gaps they saw in the world of American contemporary dance. Simply put, the art form had gotten too safe. So the ADI reemerged as not only a presenter of groundbreaking performances, but an incubator for the great work of the future. Since then, they've hosted some of the country's most celebrated artists through their performance series, from the rigorous, aggressive tap of Dorrance Dance to Urban Bush Women, who bring stories of the disenfranchised to light through their evocative choreography. Adventurous troupes such as these have earned the ADI plenty of praise, with the Washington Post, heralding the non-profit as "the region’s leading edge of edge."

  • A Broadway Christmas
    The American Pops Orchestra has an awfully lofty goal: to develop and inspire a new audience through its music. Fortunately, it's smart enough to bring a few friends along to help. The orchestra and its rising-star conductor, Luke Frazier, regularly reach out to some of the music world's most influential artists to create one-of-a-kind programs. Previous and future collaborators include music-theatre legends Christine Ebersole, Elaine Paige, and Chita Rivera; indie-music icon Rufus Wainwright; and Tony Award–winner (and star of The Good Wife) Alan Cumming.

  • Washington Concert Opera
    As their motto goes, "It's all about the music." Eschewing props, costumes, and staging for a focus on the sounds of voices and instruments, the Washington Concert Opera seeks to thrill audiences with performances by some of the profession's leading lights. Their stripped-down approach allows the company to focus on rarely produced works, from little-known Rossinis to classic Puccini B-sides.
