In this superb season finale, the Choral Arts Society of Washington will begin with “Papa” Haydn’s sunny welcome to Spring from his oratorio The Seasons. They then move to the magnificent world of grand opera, performing works from Boito's Mefistofele, Verdi's La Traviata, Gounod's Faust, and more. This exciting array of operatic excerpts, both familiar and not so familiar, will have every listener leaving the hall with a favorite tune on his or her lips.</p>
