Tapestry Music Project
Welcome to Washington Conservatory Tapestry Music Project
The Tapestry Music was born in 2017 through a grant from the estate of Gertrude Delfino, a resident of Washington DC and Rome, Italy, born to immigrant Italian parents. Ms. Delfino’s dream was for disadvantaged children from immigrant children to have opportunities for studying music.
The Washington Conservatory of Music Tapestry Music Project since expanded through additional donations to provide an array of free musical listening and learning experiences to deserving students.
- Since spring of 2017, Tapestry has served over 80 children ages 3 to 5, through music classes in two locations in Silver Spring in Montgomery County, MD, in partnership with the non-profit Montgomery Housing Partnership
- In summer of 2017, twelve children ages 7-11 enjoyed a violin immersion experience - a 5-day, 9 am to 3 pm music camp, in partnership with CASA de Maryland.
- In winter of 2017 over 700 students, faculty and parents from Arcola Elementary School received the gift of concerts by the world-renowned Spanish Brass
- Beginning in January 2018, a new early childhood music class and a beginning violin class will be offered in Takoma Park, MD, in cooperation with Montgomery Housing Partnership's Community Life Program
- Through Tapestry Music Project students receive scholarships for individual music lessons with artist-faculty members of the Washington Conservatory at both our Bethesda and Glen Echo Park sites.
Our dream is to build musical bridges for immigrant families through private music lessons, classes, ensembles, concerts, choirs and multi-generational music throughout the Greater DC and Maryland area.
Thank you for helping to make this dream come true.
