Danceability has always been a crucial part of pop music throughout the ages, but which decade -- the '80s or the '90s -- had the songs that can still make modern feet move? That very question will be answered in one night at The Fillmore as Biz Markie and several top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both the '80s and '90s. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 Top 10 song "Just A Friend," plays host and DJ while '80s cover band The New Romance and '90s cover band Here's To The Night open and close the lineup with expert renditions of your favorite dance-worthy songs from their respective eras. Hosted by HOT 99.5, Washington DC's Top 40 and pop radio station, the Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

If you haven't gone to the "What Makes It Great?" series, you must. You absolutely must! I'm an avid fan of W.A.Mozart and adored the commentary and insights from the initial discussion of his Requiem. But even a classical-agnostic would be thrilled by the way in which the music and its moving complexities were presented to the audience. Mozart is King -- a regular "Rex Tremendae Majestatis" in his own right. Choral was fantastic and the orchestra was equally top-notch!
Quotes & Highlights
“You’ve never heard a classical music concert like this before … Kapilow’s exuberance transported the audience back into the mind of the composer and his contemporaries…. it brings a whole new level of appreciation.” —San Diego Union-Tribune
“This was a knockout combination of education and entertainment … Hearing each song after Kapilow revealed its musical secrets was like meeting a celebrity just after reading his or her autobiography. Throughout the show Kapilow never once sounded dry or academic — but he did sound smart, enthusiastic, and stunningly articulate. He has a remarkable ability to make genius understandable to a general audience.” —Theatermania.com
“Concerts by the Choral Arts Society of Washington are one of life’s few truly reliable pleasures.” —The Washington Post
Former NPR music commentator and host of the What Makes It Great series Rob Kapilow joins the Choral Arts Chorus to “get audiences in tune with classical music at a deeper level than many of them thought possible” (Los Angeles Times). Kapilow unravels and explores this glorious musical masterpiece with the audience during the first half of the concert. The second half features a full performance of the work under the baton of Maestro Scribner, followed by a Q&A with the audience and the performers.
