wow, union busters, huh?
Strathmore ... do better. As a member of both Strathmore Stars AND United Scenic Artists 829; I'm deeply disappointed. Yes, times are unbelievably hard in our industry. That's the time to step up and do BETTER for your people - not worse. Show some integrity!
See you tonight! Music is my healing place. Thanks for the good vibes.
Hear Strathmore's first ever commercial recording just released on Sharon Isbin's stunning new album AFFINITY! Isbin's world premiere of the dazzling new concerto written for her by Chris Brubeck was recorded at Strathmore w/ the Maryland Symphony Orchestra. Listen & purchase: Hear music & interview on YourClassical feature:
..anyone interested in flat-picking? I’ll be giving a class June 29-July 3. It includes video lessons for 10 tunes(2 per day) and daily live discussions over Zoom. It’s $175 for the week which is a steal. Where else can you learn 10 tunes in one week along with getting technical advice and all the other perks that come with the online music camp? SIGN UP HERE: My name’s Danny Knicely. I’ve been flat-picking the guitar professionally for about 30 years. I grew up in a musical family from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. My grandfather was picking the guitar and playing the fiddle before either Old-time or Bluegrass got their names. I appear on hundreds of recordings and have performed with Vassar Clements, Mac Wiseman, Charlie Waller, Tim O’Brien, Tony Trischka, Tony Rice, David Grisman, Bruce Molsky, Chance McCoy, Alan Jabbour, Tatiana Hargreaves and many other notable artists in the genres of Bluegrass and Old-time music.
Thank you so very much for arranging this live performance which gives people some happiness during these terrible times.

Hello, We purchased 4 tickets for today's Wow in the World show. But I forgot the tickets at home (we're from Michigan). I could not find a lost ticket policy. I bought them direct from Stratmore...I have all the email receipts/confirmations. I can get my online bank statement to show it was paid. Can we still attend the show?
Strathmore: Pay my $18 Uber bill, please! Over a dozen people were stranded after the Jake Shimaburkuro concert last Thursday when Metro closed BEFORE 11:15 pm!! Why can't Strathmore pay to hold Metro open when it has a long concert?
I have to tickets to Chris Jacobs Band tonight, I will sell under face value. Please message me

In the event of a pause, we would ask visitors to wait to enter (please bring an umbrella, bundle up, and bring a flashlight) or return during a later time slot.

Again, right now the weather forecast looks positive, but if you hold tickets for tonight and would prefer to visit on another night, tickets can be reserved online. Free tickets are available Sunday–Thursday.

The trees have eyes in Strathmore’s mesmerizing art installation ‘Monuments’

"At tree-size, the faces simulate the kind of close-up interaction with a stranger that many of us probably haven’t experienced in months. You might find yourself absorbed in the subjects’ expressions or mesmerized by laugh lines and smiles, as if they were features of unfamiliar landscape seen out the window of a train." From the thoughtful review and writeup of Monuments: Creative Forces in the Washington Post! #StrathmoreMonuments Outdoor video artwork by Craig Walsh features the faces of six local artists projected on trees.
