Online Facebook Live Concert
with LILT, featuring Tina Eck & Keith Carr
Enthusiastically received in Ireland and Germany, as well as the U.S., "Lilt" -- a duo consisting of Tina Eck on flute and tin whistle and Keith Carr on bouzouki and banjo -- play traditional dance music from Ireland: jigs and reels, polkas and hornpipes, the occasional slow air or vocal number. Lilt captures the essentials of Irish traditional music: boundless energy, wildness, and melancholy.

Moving Forward

Moving Forward pushes forward into new digital exhibition spaces in order to amplify plural artistic voices. As global dynamics are morphing daily within the post-pandemic paradigm, we have experienced seismic shifts — shifts in our relationship to distance, reevaluations of our relationship with what’s “essential,” and a phenomenal shifting in our relationships with one another, catalyzed most recently by the fatal injustices against George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Rayshard Brooks killed principally for the fact of their Blackness.

Online Summer Camps
have begun!
Your kids don't have to miss out on camp this summer!

At Glen Echo Park, we are happy -- virtual -- campers! Spark your child's creativity all summer long with online Summer Camps presented by Glen Echo Park's trusted instructors.
 
From visual art and mixed media projects to music and nature & aquatic life programs, there's something for every child and every interest.

We want to offer a fun and creative online experience that will enhance your child’s summer, so each camp in our program meets for 1-2 hours, and more than one camp may be combined in a day to fit your family's needs.
Adventure Theatre Academy is excited to announce digital summer camps for Grades 1-12! Specifically created for an online and screen-based medium, a live teaching artist will guide your child step-by-step through the process.
