The Ottley Music School Singers (18 vocal students), plus Alex and Kera (steel drums and piano duo), and piano student Wrayzene Willoughby, saxophone student Patrick Costillo have performed in 34 places this year so far.  This year besides the usual monthly visits to  perform at Hillhaven Rehab Center and Nursing Home, we sang at Pine View Nursing home in Clinton for the recuperating Edward Jackson and other residents.  We sang at the Washington Hospital Center for the annual Cancer Institute's Survivors Celebration, which we have done since 2004, for the National Convention of the National Association for Negro Musicians, held this July in Silver Spring, and just before the end of the summer sang in the back-up choir for gospel legend, tenor Larnell Harris's concert (with Sherrie Jackson, soprano) at Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church's homecoming, before an congregation of about 1,200.  What a blessing.






In many languages we say, Welcome, Bienvenido, Ben venuto, Bien venue, Willkommen, Welkom, Aloha, Velkomin, Bem-vindo, Karibu, Siya namkela nonke.

We're so glad you came to visit us.  Please browse, and contact us when you are finished.  We will be glad to show you around here at our school.
