Crescendo Program Highlights
Three times a year, Crescendo players present dedicated recital-style concerts featuring the music they have prepared with their coaches. Musicians participating during prior seasons have performed in concert halls and in the community, including at St. George's Episcopal Church, The Jefferson Senior Living Community, Sunrise Senior Living Communities, and the Lubber Run Amphitheater, the latter on stage with the Arlington Philharmonic.
Crescendo values the interaction and insight that comes from exposing its young musicians to outstanding Guest Artists in the field through master classes and other special events. Guest Artists may include professional string quartets, solo performers, and even non‐classical professional musicians.
Crescendo musicians receive Instruction in chamber music techniques including ensemble leadership, sound development, ensemble identity, style analysis, performance techniques, music selection, and a refined sense of peer collaboration and communication. Rehearsals are held from September-May.
The Annual Membership Fee for the 2021-2022 season is $750. Membership includes weekly coaching by professional musicians, Guest Artist sessions, and at least three performances per year.
