I’m a local musician and wanted to tell you about my DC-baed 501c3 nonprofit for female musicians, ProjectHERA. Our mission is to support, empower, and promote women of all ages in music. We are hosting our 3rd annual HERA Music Festival on Sunday, September 22, at City Winery DC from 12-9pm. This is an all-ages, family friendly event highlighting female musicians with performances by full bands, acoustic artists and DJs!
It’s shaping up to be a really exciting day, with 3 stages; a main, acoustic, and DJ lounge, over 30 local acts, and an amazing nationally known headliner, Jill Sobule! This is an all-ages festival and anyone 18 and under is free. See our festival flyer (above) for the full line-up (we have performers as young as 7 this year.)
We have some awesome local vendors and sponsors including Chuck Levins, Music on the Hill, Femme Fatale, Compass Realty, and School of Rock. We’d love some help getting the word out, as this is a community-enriching, strengthening-the-arts event, and would love you to partner with us in continuing to build the DC music scene.
We’re a passionate group of women trying to bring together more females in the DC music community and encourages the future generation of young girls.”
