Loudoun Youth Guitars—a group of talented and highly motivated guitar students from several middle and high schools in Loudoun County, Va.—perform mostly classical music. They give concerts throughout the metropolitan area.

The NIH Philharmonia is an all-volunteer organization including NIH staff, other federal workers and the surrounding community and provides classical music of all kinds. They perform several times a year at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Rockville. The orchestra presented movements from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, including Ode to Joy.

The Tacy Foundation Youth supports medical facilities with mostly classical music concerts by children and teens from the metropolitan area. 

Upcoming concerts include the University of Maryland Jazz Combo on June 6, the Tacy Foundation Youth on June 14 and the NSO Ensemble on July 9, all at 12:30 p.m. in the CRC atrium.
