Presented by Strathmore and Classical Movements

Savor the glory of the human voice in this spectacular celebration that gathers international choir participants in the 2012 Serenade! Washington D.C. Choral Festival. Hear South African freedom songs with the historic Imilonji KaNtu Choral Society; the pure vocal sounds of the Minnetonka Chamber Choir; Canada’s upbeat Countermeasure a capella; the amazing harmonies of the Voices of Namibia; the beautifully blended sound of Australia’s Young Adelaide Voices; and extraordinary children’s choirs including Colombia’s Verata E Liberia, the Czech Republic’s Zvonky Praha, Boston’s home-grown, Boston City Singers, and Canada’s award-winning Cantaré Children’s Choir. This year’s festival focuses on new music, with each choir bringing new music or music from their home country. Strathmore audiences can hear a pair of premieres performed by all 325 singers: one by Stephen Paulus, and the world premiere of “We Are as One” by Aaron Jensen.

Free, no tickets required.
The line for admission will form beginning at 3pm outside the Music Center’s main entrance.

This concert will run approximately 135 minutes including intermission.
