Be part of an extraordinary music experience!

The interPLAY Orchestra is a 25-year old nonprofit music organization of 67 adult musicians with and without cognitive and other disabilities: amateur musicians and professional musicians, high school seniors and university musicians as “Bandaides” (mentors), all performing together for the community in year-round concerts at the world-class Music Center at Strathmore. We feature guest artists, composers and conductors playing all genres of music from Bach to Basie and everything in between … printed scores, newly composed music, full orchestra, ensembles and solos working on regulation percussion and traditional instruments – and some creative ones, just for fun and new sounds. The interPLAY Orchestra also performs choral music, features vocal soloists and a drumming curriculum led by a world-class drum master.

Our sold-out concerts have included over 100 volunteers and performers. Guest performers have included hip-hop artists and 2010 Grammy nominee Christylez Bacon, as well as a quartet from Hexagon of the Washington Political Revue.
