Woodley Park and Cleveland Park are vibrant urban destinations in Northwestern DC

However, there is also a vast expanse of nature for relaxation at Tregaron Conservancy.

“It’s a beautiful oasis,” said Alex Galiatsatos, creative media director for Washington Performing Arts. “It’s a 13 acre park nestled between Woodley and Cleveland Park.”

This Saturday, the space will host simultaneous outdoor concerts for “Tregaron Unplugged” from 4 pm to 6 pm during an event co-sponsored by Mars. Inc. and Mars Arts DC

“We will be presenting six local artists in four locations,” said Galiatsatos. “We want to create this kind of intimate, outdoor listening room environment. … It is an experience of building your own adventure. Participants can walk the trails and listen to different music, or they can bring blankets and chairs and post them by a specific artist.

The six unplugged musicians are from the DC area, Maryland and Virginia.

“Saxophonist Brad Linde; … Jazz singer Integriti Reeves; … Singer-songwriter VeVe Marley, who does a great mix of folk, afro-beats, R&B, hip-hop with acoustic guitar; classical guitarist Oscar Somersalo will perform; … The Sweater Set is a folk duo; … Finally, percussionist Rikayyah will offer a meditative space for healing through sound.

The pandemic is the perfect time to enjoy an outdoor concert in nature.

“Safety and health was a top concern and a top priority, so we were in talks with Tregaron Conservancy, and it seemed like a perfect outdoor and open event,” said Galiatsatos. “We want to make sure people feel safe and comfortable and enjoy live music again.”

Participation is free, but pre-registration is strongly recommended.
