As a community supported nonprofit, Georgetown Ministry Center is always grateful to be chosen as the charitable beneficiary of special events around town. Below you will find details about upcoming events that support our work to end homelessness in Georgetown.
K Street NW between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson Street
Washington, D.C.’s most anticipated epicurean festival celebrated its 23rd year with creative tastes from more than 30 of the neighborhood’s best restaurants. New in 2016, guests enjoyed beer and wine as they strolled from booth to booth. This foodie event takes place in the heart of Georgetown, on K Street NW, between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson Street and along the scenic Georgetown Waterfront.
This longstanding event in Georgetown benefits the Georgetown Ministry Center’s mission to support the homeless. The event began over 20 years ago by Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown and its former Rector David Bird and member Robert Egger, who went on to found DC Central Kitchen.
Eya: Ensemble for Medieval Music in Concert
Friday, May 12, 2017
Christ Church Georgetown, 3116 O St NW, Washington, DC 20007
Hailed by The Washington Post for its “…precision, strong sense of presence, and ringing vowels…”, Eya (pronounced EH-ya, a Latin exclamation of joy) is an award-winning ensemble specializing in the interpretation of medieval music for women’s voices.
Launched in 2010 by music director Allison Mondel, the group has quickly established itself as an early music ensemble of impeccable quality and deep, creative spirit. Join Eya vocalists Crossley Hawn, Allison Mondel, and Kristen Dubenion-Smith, as well as guest artists Richard Giarusso, baritone, and Brian Kay, lute/percussion, as they recreate Les Trois Maries, an early 14th-century liturgical drama intended to illuminate the emotional journey of the three Marys as they prepare to visit tomb of Christ. Accompanied on historical instruments, scenes from the drama will be interwoven with polyphony, plainchant, and instrumental improvisation. All proceeds from the free-will offering will benefit Georgetown Ministry Center. A reception will follow.
