Mission Statement

The Concert Series at the Basilica of Saint Mary is designed to foster community and our ideals as a Catholic Parish. Each year the series will program the works of great musicians from different eras and feature national and local artists including solo, chamber, and university ensembles. The concerts embody the spirit of the magisterium of the Catholic Church, seeking to unify, engage and educate our lives as Christians. The performances will also be coordinated with the liturgical cycle and each event will draw on themes of the individual religious season.

Manheim Rocket Chamber Players

The Mannheim Rocket Orchestra is the premier period-instrument ensemble of Northern Virginia. Named for one of the musical innovations of the Mannheim school where composers introduced a number of novel ideas into the orchestral music of their day. Mannheim Rocket was founded in 2013 by the award- winning conductor and clarinetist, Richard Spece.
