Next Sunday, April 15, The Kennedy Center And The Washington Chorus, And The National Gallery Of Art, To Celebrate American Classical Choral Music

The Washington Chorus: American Masters: Bernstein, Barber, and Copland
April 15, 2007 at 3:00 PM
Concert Hall, Kennedy Center

The Washington Chorus, under the inspired leadership of Robert Shafer, Music Director, and David Hayes, Guest Conductor, celebrates the music of three of our most significant American composers: Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, and Aaron Copland. Bernstein allowed some of his jazz and Latin dance music influences to color the spiritual Chichester Psalms, with texts from the Hebrew Psalms. Barber's Prayers of Kierkegaard, with its inspiring texts, is a gem. Copland's Old American Songs and The Tender Land gave a contemporary voice to traditional American folk music.
