Musical Performances

In recent years–under the enthusiastic leadership of MPAartfest Music Curator Ken Avis–music has become an integral and much-loved part of MPAartfest. The 15th Annual MPAartfest will continue this tradition with performances throughout the day by some of the DC-area’s most celebrated musicians.
