The Choral Arts Society of Washington brings the passionate music and dance of Argentina to the Kennedy Center. Tango! Soul and Heart begins with two spiritual pieces -- Lamentations of Jeremiah, a sacred a cappella motet by Argentina's most famous composer, Alberto Ginastera, and Luis Bacalov's Misa Tango, a stunning mass that features the iconic sounds of the accordion-like bandonéon. The second half of the program finds participants performing traditional and classic tango works by such composers as Astor Piazzolla, while talented guest artists showcase the dance of passion in a dazzling display.

The "Candlelight Christmas" performance at the Kennedy Center by the Washington Chorus was fabulous. The voices were a wall of beautiful sound, with a 120+ member chorus. The accompanying brass and drums, along with the Concert Hall organ, made for a magical evening. Great event.

Great choral concert! The only problem was with the audience. It was as if they had no idea it had a sing-a-long as part of the show. While most of the audience did stand and sing, those that didn't want to sing just sat down. Bah-humbug!

The Washington Chorus continues its rich tradition of supporting and supplementing the music programs in area high schools by welcoming The Whitman Choir, under the direction of Jeffrey Davidson, from Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, MD as its Side by Side high school partner chorus for these concerts.
