The sensual vocals and poetic songwriting of Grammy-winning singer Mary Chapin Carpenter helped propel her 1992 country album Come On Come On to quadruple-platinum status. Since then, her beautiful music has become more socially and politically oriented, while also increasingly bringing in orchestral elements. Her latest album, Songs From the Movie, revisits tunes from her past, setting them to symphonic instrumentation evocative of a stirring film score. Now, you can see her play these compelling reinventions of her own with the National Symphony Orchestra. Learn More
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.NSO: Koh Plays Barber info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

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.
