Ever since CapitalBop was founded almost a decade ago, we have been fighting to make sure that everyone in D.C. has a place in our jazz scene. Young people are the future of the music, and it’s absolutely essential that they have spaces to listen, learn, and play life-changing music.
How can I get involved?

Grade-school students are invited to attend our monthly artist workshops at Sitar Arts Center, part of our Spotlight residency.
