Description

Merryman: Jonah

Mendelssoohn: Hebrides Overture

Arianna Zukerman, soprano

Heather Johnson, mezzo-soprano

William Hite, tenor

Sanford Sylvan, bass

Few choral works are better known than Mozart’s Requiem. Paired with the dramatic imagery of Marjorie Merryman’s Jonah and the exciting Mendelssohn classic, this concert is not to be missed.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Washington Chorus

Founded in 1961 as the Oratorio Society of Washington, The Washington Chorus is noted for its critically-acclaimed performances and recordings of the entire range of the choral repertoire. A Grammy Award winner, The Washington Chorus is currently in its 50th season and is considered a cultural leader in the Washington area. The Chorus presents an annual subscription series at the J. F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Music Center at Strathmore, and other major venues throughout the Washington area. The Chorus frequently appears there at the invitation of the National Symphony Orchestra, singing under the direction of many of the world's greatest conductors including Leonard Slatkin, Mstislav Rostropovich, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Seiji Ozawa, Sir Neville Marriner, Charles Dutoit, Kent Nagano and many others. In addition to its regular Kennedy Center performances, the Chorus has sung throughout the metropolitan area and has received acclaim for numerous world premieres. The Chorus has recorded, been nationally broadcast and internationally televised, performed as part of a motion picture soundtrack, and has performed for presidential inaugurations and to honor world leaders.
