Program Notes

I’m So DC is a go-go tune that celebrates the birthplace of the genre, and the city that many of us call home. Featuring lots of percussion, brass choirs, and woodwind consorts, it’s an uplifting conclusion that will hopefully leave you inspired to change our world for the better. We are indeed “caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.”

- Program Note from University of Maryland Wind Orchestra concert program, 7 May 2022


I'm So DC is one component of a concept entitled Classically Dope. Classically Dope is a hip-hop and classical music collaboration featuring DC rapper Konshens the MC. Using music as an instrument of positive social influence, the ensemble tackles subjects such as the power of belief, racial inequality, stereotypes, police brutality, and being a change agent in the world. Combining two genres that are typically seen as polar opposites, this fusion brings diverse communities together by showing that a common love for music transcends geography, race, age, values, and socioeconomic status. The focus is on what makes us alike and how we can always find commonality, empathy, and relatability with every person in our day-to-day lives.
