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.
