This month we’re proud to announce CapitalBop’s Spotlight Residency, a new monthly series that will highlight a different D.C. bandleader each month, providing them with a receptive space to experiment with new ideas and connect with listeners. The residency will take place over the course of one weekend each month, and includes back-to-back concerts on Saturday and Sunday nights as well as a free, open workshop at Sitar Arts Center aimed at young people and their families.
TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 25 + SUNDAY, AUGUST 26
CapitalBop’s first Spotlight artist-in-residence will be Reginald Cyntje, a renowned trombonist and composer who has been a constant source of inventive, original music on the D.C. scene for over a decade. Cyntje’s compositions draw upon the Calypso and Quelbe musical traditions of his native St. Thomas, plus his years of experience in the District.
