Founded in 1961 as the Oratorio Society of Washington, the Washington Chorus is noted for its stellar and critically-acclaimed performances and recordings of the entire range of the choral repertoire. TWC won a GRAMMY Award in 2000 for Best Choral Performance of the Year for its live-performance recording of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem. In addition to its recordings, the 200-voice Chorus considers its many education and community outreach initiatives an integral component of its mission.

World-renowned tenor Carl Tanner joins this festive holiday program with highlights from his new Christmas CD. TWC has a rich tradition of supporting and supplementing the music programs in area high schools and welcomes its 2006-2007 Side by Side high school partner chorus, the Westfield High School Chamber Singers from Chantilly, VA. The Chamber Singers will join TWC for the second half of the program.

This performance will be sign interpreted.
