From Christmas Chorus to Community Chorus
The District Music Project was born out of a Christmas chorus started in 2016 in D.C.’s Mt. Pleasant neighborhood. It was wildly popular! So popular in fact, that when it returned in 2017, it had practically doubled in size. It was also the inspiration to offer these community music-making opportunities year-round.
The chorus is now offered year-round. Think of it as the nondenominational magic of Christmas 365 days a year.
While the DMP continues to grow and offer an increasingly diverse array of music education, our roots are forever in a little neighborhood chorus that was free and open to all — and it remains that way today.
No prior experience is required. Just show up ready to learn and have a good time! Materials will be provided.
FALL CHORUS: “The Time Warp”
The District Music Project Chorus returns for its 2nd fall season, and we’re leaning into the spookiest time of the year by learning an a cappella arrangement of Rocky Horror Picture Show’s “The Time Warp”! Weekly Sunday rehearsals begin on September 1 at Mt. Pleasant’s beloved Purple Patch restaurant and continue through October 27, culminating with a few bone-chilling performances leading up to Halloween. As always, no experience is required, and materials are provided. We hope to see you there!
WHAT: DMP Fall Chorus sings “The Time Warp”
