The capital of the USA and the country's political centre, Washington D.C. is also an historic city, with many of the nation's greatest treasures to be found at the famous Smithsonian Institution. Washington also has a great reputation for the arts and your ensemble is certain to receive a warm welcome on a school music tour to Washington D.C. 

Despite being best known as the political heart of the USA, Washington D.C. also boasts a great reputation for producing musical artists, including Jazz greats such as Duke Ellington and Roberta Flack. Several orchestras are based in the city and the famous Kennedy Center hosts many of the city's numerous concerts and shows. The city has also been important for brass bands; military brass band composer John Philip Sousa was born in the city and the US Marine and Navy bands are both based here.
