Artist biography: CAPITAL CITY SYMPHONY (RESIDENT ARTS PARTNER)
Capital City Symphony (CCS) is a community orchestra based in Washington, D.C. We are one of the founding arts partners of the Atlas Performing Arts Center, located in Northeast DC’s Atlas District.
We were founded in 1967 as the Georgetown Symphony Orchestra. In 2005, we relocated to H Street NE and took the name Capital City Symphony in order to better reflect our new location and city-wide focus. This move has given us the opportunity to make classical music performances accessible in an area of the city that has been traditionally underserved, both economically and culturally. The 2006-07 concert season marked our first season fully in residence as an Arts Partner at the new Atlas Performing Arts Center, which is the cornerstone of the H Street NE corridor revitalization project.
Capital City Symphony
The Capital City Symphony strives to make great orchestral music approachable by presenting affordable concerts to the public, performing creative programs in a relaxed concert format, and providing a musical outlet for talented amateur as well as professional players.
