WASHINGTON SOUND MUSEUM X
One Year Anniversary
April 28th will mark the one year anniversary of Washington Sound Museum and its many journeys through musical landscapes. WSM has travelled to various venues around Washington, DC and has traversed across musical genres.
Any anniversary calls for celebration; this one in particular will be held at WSM’s birthplace, BloomBars.
Over the past year, Christylez has committed himself to writing and composing an original new piece for each new installment of Washington Sound Museum. Some of these original songs have been performed with featured presenters for WSM and were so memorable, that the visiting artists were invited back for encore performances. These unforgettable artists were: Hindustani Classical musician, Nistha Raj and Contemporary Arabic musician, Huda Asfour.
For anyone who has ever attended a WSM event, the tea ceremony is most likely the most endearing quality of such a home-grown event that gives the audience the unique opportunity to experience sounds from around the world. The main WSM performance is always preempted by a tea ceremony that has become a WSM tradition. On this very special occasion, the tea ceremony will be hosted by Michelle Norkus, who will be serving what she calls, “the champagne of teas,” very fitting when celebrating one year of success.
By bearing witness to one of The Districts few monthly events that offers a taste of foreign music in an urban setting, music lovers have also been able to enjoy the series in places like The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for free, as well as Atlas Performing Arts Center.
Come join the BloomBars family in celebration of a successful year of Washington Sound Museum on April 28th, with a tea time of 7PM and performances starting at 8PM.
