The ACC performed at the Kennedy Center in conjunction with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra accompanying Ballet West for the seven-show run. Singing at the world-renowned performing arts center right here in our own backyard was an experience that will last a lifetime for our young choristers. Imagine the memories they’ll share for years.
Check out these pictures from our evening of singing for PBS (Nov. 16, 2018). We sang the themes for Sesame Street, Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, and Arthur TV shows at the Top of the Town restaurant in Rosslyn with magnificent views of our nation’s capital.

The Keynote speaker was Sonia Manzano – though most of us remember her as Maria from Sesame Street. Named one of the “25 Greatest Latina Role Models Ever” by Latina Magazine, she has won 15 Emmy awards, a Peabody award for her writing, and is an accomplished stage actor.
The PBS Kids Early Learning Champions event honors and elevates passionate educators of young learners. The 2018 champions were nominated by PBS member stations from across the country and they represent diverse and varied teaching experiences. Champions will embark on a 2-year program of learning and community-building opportunities.
