About

Brass instruments make a BIG sound! But when Brass of Peace takes the stage, children might be surprised to see that these musicians behind this powerful playing aren’t much bigger than they are. Comprised of 13 D.C.-area high school students, this ensemble plays a selection of pieces that just might blow the roof off the Kennedy Center. Retired NSO hornist Sylvia Alimena conducts these concerts that bring together the city’s finest young brass musicians to teach audiences all about how this family of instruments makes music out of metal and wind.

Most enjoyed by age 3 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.

Come early for a Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo"
Starting one hour before the concert, hands-on activities let children get up close with the instruments they'll see played on the stage.
