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.” —
“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.
