The Washington Chorus, 200 voices strong, returns with its beloved annual holiday event -- an evening of classic Christmas music, breath-taking candlelight processions and stirring sing-alongs, accompanied by brass, organ and percussion. The Side by Side program, featuring high-school choirs who'll join the Chorus for all its performances, continues this year as well, with the Robinson Singers from the James R. Robinson Secondary School participating. With more than 50 years of history, the Grammy Award-winning Washington Chorus is considered a cultural leader in the Washington area under its music director, Julian Wachner. Learn More

The band was fantastic, and I like Bela's bluegrass even better. My problem is with the venue. Only about half the ushers seem like they know what direction to point you, or even look up from their phones. After announcing that late patrons should wait for a break in the music to take a seat, they direct them with, complete with a flashlight in your face, to climb over you, and past dozens of empty seats, over others, to their ticketed seat. In the middle of a performance. How disruptive. The bars at intermission take only cash, making a transaction that should take moments into one that takes so long, if there are more than 10 people in front of you, fuggetaboutit. I ordered wine in advance, but I really needed caffeine after a long day, and was 20th in line, and barely moved despite the long intermission. Strathmore tries to bill itself as a class establishment, but they have a long way to go to achieve that.
This concert will run approximately 140 minutes with intermission.
Don't miss a free pre-concert lecture, How Do They Do It? The Mind-Meld of Ensemble Improvisation, at 6:30pm in the Shapiro Music Room in the Mansion. Speakers are Brad Linde and Charles Limb. Brad will discuss how collective improvisation works musically, both within the ensemble and within the mind and instruments of individual artists. Dr. Limb’s portion of the talk will discuss functional neuroimaging experiments of musical improvisation, which are explored as a means of understanding how creativity takes place in the brain.
