The Calvary Lutheran Church, 9545 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD.
Conservatory Classic JB


Back by popular demand, Neville Dickie from the UK!

Directions:: From the Beltway, exit south on Georgia Ave. The church is on the east side of Georgia, immediately south of the beltway (that would be on your left). Going across Georgia Ave. here to enter the church can be difficult because of oncoming traffic. So, proceed south on Georgia about one block and turn into the shopping center with the Staples Store on your right. Continue thru the parking lot and turn left onto the exit street, Seminary Place. From there, you will be able to safely and easily get back to Georgia Avenue because there is a traffic light at Seminary Place.

 Admission:
PRJC members ($20), General admission ($25; $22.50 in advance),
Youth & Students with valid student IDs (Free).
