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.

The Washington Chorus opens its 51st season with the Washington premiere of a major new work by Music Director Julian Wachner, an acclaimed composer with over 100 published works.
“Come, My Dark-Eyed One” combines passionate and dramatic music with poetry by Sarah Teasdale, e.e. cummings, John Clare, Emily Dickinson, Alfred Tennyson and famed Turkik poet Ali-Shir Nava’i whose poem forms the core and title of the work. It speaks of two lovers’ lives and how that great love transcends death itself.
