Musician Profile: Dupont Brass

Meet Dupont Brass- one of our favorite market bands! These brass bandmates met and formed their band at Howard University originally to raise tuition. The original five member band has grown to whopping 11-member band in the last few years. Come have a listen at the market this Saturday and check out some footage of one of the times they joined us on the plaza this season. Listen to more on their You Tube channel.

This Saturday, Willow Street Yoga joined us again with some free hot(ish) yoga. We were blessed with a not steaming day, perfect for doing yoga in the shade!
