Happy New Year everyone,

As I keep my hopes up for lots of work cancelling snow falling in the coming weeks, my thoughts turn to preparation for summer concerts.

The 2016 season went very well by all accounts. However, when all was said and done, we didn’t raise the funds we hoped we would.

To put on eight shows this summer we will need at least $6000 to cover expenses and retain a small seed for next year. We are exploring our fundraising opportunities but in the mean time, I am asking now for folks to give what they can to support the concert series.

2017 is the 49th year of free music in Fort Reno Park, help us get to 50 (and beyond)! We have 100 days to raise the needed funds. In other terms that is: $60/day - 6 people giving $10/day.

Through our fiscal sponsor, The Washington Peace Center, all donations are tax deductible. Please use their PayPal for credit/debit transactions. If you prefer to write a check, make it payable to The Washington Peace Center and put “Fort Reno Concert Series” in the memo. Mail the check to:

The Washington Peace Center
1525 Newton Street NW
Washington, DC 20010

I am very grateful for all the support for 2016, look forward to seeing everyone in July.



John Stabb (1961-2016)

This summer we mourn the passing and celebrate the life and work of John Stabb. Mina, John's wife has generously asked that people wishing to continue to honor him make their donations in his memory to Fort Reno.
