Each possessing more than a quarter-century of D.C. musical history, Washington Performing Arts’ two namesake choirs—the Men and Women of the Gospel and the Children of the Gospel—take the stage together in an evening of inspiration and jubilation. Fixtures of the regional gospel scene, the “MWCOTG” have performed in prestigious settings from the National Cathedral and Kennedy Center to White House state dinners and the National Cherry Blossom Parade. Their joint Strathmore concert is sure to be an occasion for celebration and a festive finale to Washington Performing Arts’ 2019/20 Season!

Performances by the Children of the Gospel Choir are made possible in part through the generous support of Jacqueline Badger Mars and Mars, Incorporated.

On sale August 26.

This performance is not presented by Strathmore.
