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.

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. Learn more about Cyntje and the Spotlight Residency here.
