With the campus’s proximity to Washington, D.C., Asbury residents have always had plenty of opportunities to stay in tune with cultural happenings. But did you know that Asbury Methodist Village has a unique partnership with the Strathmore and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University? Asbury is Mongtomery County's only satellite location for the Strathmore Center for the Arts, featuring several performances each year by Strathmore resident artists.

October brought steelpan musician Josanne Francis to the Rosborough Theater at Asbury and each fall, Osher brings two of its most popular classes and lecturers to our campus. This year's selections include a look at the evolution of opera and Hollywood's blacklist during the McCarthy era.

Past courses have included renowned musician and music historian Saul Lilienstein and concerts presented by members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Asbury residents also enjoy discounted rates to Strathmore performances and many Osher classes held on the Johns Hopkins campus, and of course, can also partake of the community’s own Keese School of Continuing Education, which offers a wide array of lectures, tours and courses taught by area professors and professionals.

At Asbury Methodist Village, you can anticipate a life filled with many such opportunities.
