180 voices throughout the Concert Hall create The Original Surround Sound.
Choral Arts opens its 45th Anniversary season with this innovative and unique concert. Under the baton of Artistic Director Norman Scribner, the full 180-member chorus will be positioned in up to eight locations throughout the Concert Hall, literally encircling the audience with sound.

Members of the Washington Symphonic Brass join with Choral Arts for this exciting performance, playing with the chours and between choral pieces. The presence of the brass will be so strong that Maestro Scribner described the experience as two concerts for the price of one!
