The String Queens
April 25, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0
Soulful sounds from Pachelbel to Ellington to CeeLo Green and beyond
A potent and innovative presence on the D.C. music scene, the String Queens are the 2019/20 Mars Arts D.C. Ensemble-in-Residence. The “Queens” are Kendall Isadore, Dawn Johnson, and Élise Cuffy—three genre-defying musicians whose creative impact on D.C. ranges from collaborations with star singer Aloe Blacc and the Kennedy Center to inspirational work as arts educators. The String Queens bring together an eclectic mix of soulful music from the Baroque era through the Jazz Age and today’s Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Mars Arts D.C. is a partnership of Mars, Incorporated, and Washington Performing Arts, with support from Jacqueline Badger Mars.
Performances at Sixth & I are made possible through the generous support of the Galena-Yorktown Foundation.
