“To foster a greater sense of common humanity through the international language of music by showcasing the very best of each culture in each nation’s symbolic home in Washington.”
In 1994, the Embassy Series made its debut. Since then, the Series has worked with over 200 ambassadors, hosted over 600 concerts in 73 different embassies involving more than 800 international artists from 80 countries and over 300 artists from the D.C. area.
By extending public access to the embassies in the Nation’s Capital, the Series offers its audience the opportunity to participate in a cultural exchange – to watch and listen to a musical performance that highlights the contributions of a particular country. Such a backdrop allows the audience to “get a feel” for the nation being represented, which is key to promoting and celebrating the diversity of both a host embassy and Series patrons.
This educational and musical experience is accentuated by a reception at the host embassy, or residence, immediately following the concert, where guests are encouraged to interact with the featured artist(s) of the evening and the diplomatic community.
