Entering its 24th season, the Landon Symphonette is a unique group of talented musicians from Landon School and other area schools and colleges playing together with seasoned professionals, in an unrivaled mentoring relationship.
Approximately one-third of the Landon Symphonette is made up of professional performers, up to one-third Landon students and teachers, and about one-third students from the Washington, Baltimore and Northern Virginia area. Over the years, students from more than 50 area schools have participated in this outstanding program, with perhaps 10-15 represented at any one concert. All must have achieved a certain level of competence and expertise. In sponsoring this concert series, Landon offers the opportunity to talented young players, nominated by their teachers, to join in this special collaborative effort.
The Landon Symphonette’s season includes a program of concerts that are open to the public. All concerts start at 5 p.m. in the Mondzac Performing Arts Center on campus. In addition, the group sponsors a number of chamber concerts at the Friendship Heights Village Center in Chevy Chase.
