Help throw a Beethoven 250th musical birthday bash - a FREE concert featuring three of Beethoven's Greatest Hits for piano: the Pathetique, Moonlight and Appassionata Sonatas.

About the Project


Help us throw Beethoven a 250th birthday bash concert of piano favorites, as a FREE gift to the Greater Bethesda and Metropolitan Washington community.  Everyone deserves to hear a great artist perform great music.

Through your support, we will bring one of the world's foremost authorities on Beethoven, who began his career by winning the International Beethoven Competition in Vienna to Montgomery County! (We can't announce him yet without the funds, but can you guess who?)  Beethoven's Greatest Hits will feature some of his best-known piano masterpieces: the Moonlight, Pathetique and Appasionata sonatas! 

The Washington Conservatory of Music is one of the 15 nationally accredited community music schools in the United States.  Our mission is threefold: 1.) to present music lessons and classes with outstanding faculty to students of all ages, without audition; 2.) to reach out to provide free music classes to underserved children in primarily 1st generation immigrant neighborhoods; 3.) to provide free professional concerts so that music-lovers of all economic means can enjoy outstanding music in a community concert setting.
