Music has the power to transport you, and A First Exploration is going to take you places! We invite you to explore this captivating art form, and to experience the beauty, passion, and excitement for yourself.
After a musical invitation to an unfamiliar but exhilarating soundscape, we continue with a journey from the shores of America to the harbors of south France. We then turn inward, to grapple with some of the most fundamental emotions that visit us all. Don't miss your chance to see -and hear- classical music in a whole new way!
BetaSounds has found a home for its first set of concerts at The Conservatory Coffee Shop located in Georgetown. Home to a diverse group of creatives, The Conservatory is a cafe, a center of learning, an artist community that aims to create an atmosphere for their patrons in ways that are different, imaginative, memorable, and entertaining.
Parking is available on the street, as well as in several free parking lots within blocks of the shop.
Beer, wine, sandwiches, snacks, and of course coffee available for purchase.
