Summer Sings

May 8th, 2009

From Fred: Here is the lineup of Summer Sings at Western Presbyterian Church, 24th. & G st. NW, Washington, DC. It’s a great chance to experience singing works we have already sung or might sing in the future. You’ll be surrounded by 200+ experienced singers and directed by some of the other top choral conductors in this area. You even get a quick rehearsal of the tricky choral parts before the professional soloists come “on stage” for the performance. (that’s just after the break where you can purchase drinks and walk around)

I go and read along with the performance even if I have not sung it before.

JUNE 2 – MOZART REQUIEM Conducted by J. Reilly Lewis

JUNE 9 – BRAHMS REQUIEM (in German) Conducted by Tom Hall

JUNE 16 – MENDELSSOHN ELIJAH (in English) Conducted by Thomas Beveridge

JUNE 23 – FAURE REQUIEM Conducted by Robert Shafer

Admission for each event is $10; score rental, $2 (or bring your own score). Doors open at 6:45, rehearsal starts at 7:45. Parking is tricky. There is a small parking garage under the church which usually fills up by 7:15. Commercial parking a couple of blocks away. Foggy Bottom Metro is a good alternative.
