In this free preview of Home Delivery Plus, the adventurous and energizing D.C.-based trio The String Queens take the stage at Sixth & I in a festive mix of holiday favorites and pop classics. Our Mars Arts D.C. Ensemble-in-Residence, the Queens are celebrated for a repertoire ranging from the Baroque to the Jazz Age to today’s Billboard “Hot 100.” Their members have collaborated with the likes of Ledisi, Solange, Leslie Odom Jr., Janelle Monáe, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Common, and the late Aretha Franklin. All three are also frequent “collaborators” with dozens of local students, as music teachers in Washington, D.C. schools.

  • Soundcheck: All-new TSQ video mini-medley of spirituals recorded at the WPA offices; instructional videos by TSQ's members on the art of improvisation, and more!
