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.

No stage composer and lyricist matches the creativity and wit of Stephen Sondheim. From Sweeney Todd to Sunday in the Park with George and Assassins, his creations remain true to his own interests while tapping into America's fascination with the big questions of life as explored through art. Echoing the Kennedy Center's 2002 tribute to this master of music and lyrics, Marvin Hamlisch conducts the NSO Pops in Sondheim at 80, a concert of Sondheim's best-loved tunes in celebration of his 80th birthday, featuring performances by Liz Callaway, Michael Cerveris, Brian d'Arcy James, Maria Friedman, and Patricia Noonan. This is a little night music you don't want to miss!
