This intergenerational music event features performances by national, regional and youth musicians.
This year, FAME will feature all genres of music (classical, jazz, gospel and country) in the spectrum of hip hop. Trombonist and recording artist Leon Rawlings from the 76 Degrees West Band has created a Special Tribute to Chuck Brown, the world renowned, Grammy nominated, and legendary Godfather of Go-Go. Mr. Rawlings will be joined by friends and fellow musicians, including a special performance by Prince George’s County Maryland Council Members Derrick Leon Davis and Will Campos on saxophone.
This benefit concert will raise awareness of the importance of music education and the arts in a child’s development, increase the community’s exposure to a variety of music genres and provide quality, affordable programming for the entire family.
Proceeds from the concert will support FAME’s after school and scholarship programs. This performance is supported in part by the Washington Redskins, M-NCPPC Arts and Cultural Heritage Division, The Washington Informer, The Gazette and the Prince George’s County Maryland Council.
