LoveArtPlay to present 'Tales of Women' to aid S'Cool Sounds

LoveArtPlay will sponsor a special event, “Tales of Women in Dance, Music and Song,” April 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Washington Montessori School.

Professional New York dancers will perform to the music of Wykeham Consort, with actors who will recite the texts of some songs.

The performance will raise funds for S’Cool Sounds (, an organization that teaches music to underserved children in the U.S. and abroad.

The teaching artists are Juilliard graduates.

Matilda Giampietro, PhD, of Washington, one of the members of the Wykeham Consort, is on the leadership team of S’Cool Sounds and has traveled with the organization to teach music and movement to Syrian refugees in Jordan, children in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya, and Village Health Works in Burundi.

Wykeham Consort is an ensemble of musicians fascinated by the music of the Sephardim and of Renaissance Europe.

Some of the children served by S’Cool Sounds are in New York city as well, with music programs in five schools.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by on EvenBrite or at the door.
