DC's Different Drummers presents 'Intimate Winds' concert

Get up close and personal with small ensembles, consisting of quartets and quintets, of the D.C. Different Drummers during its upcoming concert, Intimate Winds: Beautiful Music in a Historic Setting.

”Because it’s such smaller groups, it’s just a more intimate setting,” says Scott Barker, DCDD’s artistic director, about the title of the production that ranges in music from ragtime to jazz to Broadway.

”The great thing about each of these groups is that they are self-directed. It’s a much more collaborative, collegial process, and it really brings out the musicianship in everybody that’s involved.”

Barker, who’s been with DCDD for 10 years, says he will be leaving the organization this spring to focus on other work.

”I think it’s time for the group to get some new creative energy, and I wanted to focus on other things,” he says.

D.C. Different Drummers’ Intimate Winds concert is scheduled for 2 p.m., on Sunday, Feb. 24, at the Josephine Butler Parks Center, 2437 15th St. NW. Tickets are $20, available at www.dcdd.org.
