Davies Concert Series
Join us for the Davies Concert Series, now entering its 49th year of presenting acclaimed musical artists in Prince George’s County. All performances this year will be offered virtually in keeping with the congregation’s commitment to the health and well being of the community.
Each virtual concert will be followed by an opportunity for artists and audiences to gather online in real time, to celebrate the arts and join in conversation.
Check out our Premiere Podcast about the concert series and our collaboration with the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts (CAAPA) last season:
All concerts begin at 4pm and can be accessed HERE. We invite you to check back for further details in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, check out the stellar line-up of virtual concerts scheduled for the 2020-21 season:

Sunday, January 31, 2021 – The Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts (CAAPA) – “From Cosi to Charade: Musical Journey of Euro, Afro and American Music” — Travel in musical time from Mozart’s original love opera “Così fan tutte” to today’s challenging social times with music spanning generations from European to African American selections. The narrated presentation journeys through history and includes music by Mozart, Puccini, and other European composers to American music, to today’s most contemporary Neo Soul performer D’Angelo, whose music “Really Love” and “The Charade” speaks to our challenging social justice times. The concert asks audience members the question: “Are the music and the messages really that different?”
Sunday, March 21, 2021 – Folk Musician Lynn Hollyfield – One of the Series’ most popular performers, Ms. Hollyfield presents original and traditional favorites to help us welcome Spring.
Sunday, April 11, 2021 – Pianist Brian Ganz and the Sunrise Quartet – Brian Ganz has been eager to work with the Sunrise String Quartet for many years. For this virtual concert, the artists will try something new – requesting some of their favorite pieces for each other to play. This unique and innovative approach gives audiences a new way to experience these composers and musicians.
