About the event
Official FREE modular synth concert series for the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia communities
We are thrilled to give our local and visiting artists a place to play modular synths live and in front of an audience right here on America's most visited national park, where the past, present, and future come together.
The event occurs at The DC War Memorial on weekends during the warmer months of the year. Follow us on Threads, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates. Check out the fabulous performances on YouTube, too!
Events will be held at the DC War Memorial on the National Mall
This circular, open-air, Doric structure, was built with the purpose of being both a memorial and a bandstand. DC native John Phillip Sousa attended the memorial's dedication ceremony back in 1931, leading the US Marine Band in a 20-minute performance. Now, 90 years later, we’ve brought the bandstand back, this time with 20-minute performances from our modular community.
Performers and attendees meet on the bandstand to listen to the unique sounds reverberating from the dome. There's also room to spread out on the lawn, surrounded by many shade trees. Bring a blanket, food, and lots of your friends for an afternoon of awesome modular music. You can even bring your pup! (with a leash)
