Music Therapy at Kennedy Center's The REACH Festival

August 16, 2019 11:54 AM

Kennedy Center’s The REACH Opening Festival

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts presents 16 days of “creativity in action” at the REACH.  These innovative indoor and outdoor spaces put YOU at the center of the art—where you can chart your own course and connect what moves you.

Every day of the festival offers something for everyone, with daily spotlights on special themes or art forms sprinkled throughout. No matter when you visit, you’ll find plenty of unique performances, interactive activities, insightful conversations, and other events that speak to your interests and pique your curiosity. Explore everything from classical, jazz, and electronica music to comedy, dance, theater, film, Hip Hop, indigenous cultures, and family fun!

Discover how the Kennedy Center is forging new ways for artists from near and far, community groups, and YOU to come together to create and share joyous and meaningful moments, learn from each other, and win hearts and minds through the power of the arts. See you at the REACH!
