The Performers

The Marshall Keys Ensemble

Federico Gonzalez Peña honed his craft in Argentina before arriving in North America in 1984. His first piano was left to him by his grandmother, an accomplished pianist and organist, and, while still a teenager, he played recording sessions with many of the finest musicians in Buenos Aires. Feel- ing constrained by the rigidity of classical music, he began exploring other teacher in D.C.’s Public School system. Additionally, he has worked with the Wolftrap Institute for Early Childhood Learning, the Thelonius Monk Insti- tute, and is the current musical director of the Blues Alley Youth Orchestra.

Marshall Keys is a virtuoso soprano and alto saxophone artist, and is a gifted composer as well. A native of Washington DC, Marshall began with the DC Youth Orchestra Pro- gram, then flirted with jazz studies at Howard University, all the while working with legend- ary jazz musicians like Jimmy Witherspoon, Jimmy Heath, Pepper Adams, Miriam Makeba,

Jimmy Scott, Stevie Wonder, and the blues organist Jimmy McGriff. Some career highlights include the “Tribute to Lionel Hampton” at the Kennedy Center in 1981 where he performed with Milt Hinton, Al Grey, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Illinois Jacquet and Lionel Hampton; a commission by the Smithsonian to perform works by Wayne Shorter; performing and speaking at the Romare Bearden Exhibit at the National Gallery of Art; and tours around the globe. Marshall’s recent endeavors include playing in the Washington National Cathedral Band and collaborating with saxo- phonist Paul Carr in the Carr/Keys project. Thanks to his collaborations with the world-class musicians and institutions in Washington, DC, this is the most productive and satisfying period in his long career.

Mark Prince , a D.C. native, is one of the premier drummers on today’s music scene. He was a student of the legendary Grady Tate and is a National Symphony Fellowship recipient. His versatility has been sought after by artists such as Andy Milne, Bobby Lyle, and the seminal World- Beat/R&B sensation Fertile Ground. He has also toured and recorded with Carlos Ward’s Radius,

Michael Bowie performs on electric and contra- bass, and is a composer and multi-media produc- er. He received the National Endowment of the Arts Award in Jazz Studies and was an original member of The Harper Brothers. He has ap- peared at most major music festivals and countless television shows.

About Quakers

we have no set prayers, sermons, altars, scripture readings, or hymns. All who are present silently join in prayer and medi- tation and, if moved by the Divine Spirit, give expression to prayer or speak in the spirit of worship. It is through the weekly meeting for worship that we seek spiritual nourish- ment and inspiration to go back into, and provide service to,

The Religious Society of Friends, whose members are called Friends or Quakers, goes back to the 17 th Century. Today, more than 81,000 Quakers live and worship in the United States and Canada. Quakers are all ages, educational backgrounds, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, and abilities. Everyone is

serve society is to serve the Divine. Friends have engaged in social action including the abolitionist movement, World War II relief work, refugee work, and the civil rights movement. We strive to achieve peace, racial equality, gender equality, prison reform, the abolition of capital punishment, and a living wage for all. We condemn war, but not a specific group of people, as we seek to establish a framework for reconciliation.We believe that those who are called enemies are, in fact, friends separated by misunderstanding. The Religious Society of Friends historically belongs to a group of churches advocating for pacifism or nonresistance. Peace churches also include the Church of the Brethren and Mennonites, including the Amish.

We understand that one’s outward life needs to bear witness to truth discerned inwardly.We commit to live simply so that others can simply live. We believe the Inner Light is the manifestation of the Divine. The Inner Light is not one’s conscience but that which enlightens one’s conscience. We discern the Inner Light by silently and patiently waiting for the Divine to speak to us during what we call meeting for worship .

Change a Child ’ s Story

Make a Difference. CASA empowers volunteers to advocate for children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect. CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are constant, caring adults who see children through the uncertainty of foster care and speak for them in court. We believe that every child deserves a safe, loving, and permanent home.
