OUTDOOR Choral Concert: Choral Arts Chamber Singers
“I Hear America Singing”
Choral Arts Chamber Singers | Scott Tucker, conductor
Performing in person for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, singers from the Choral Arts Society of Washington and Music Director Scott Tucker showcase the wide-ranging influences that have shaped American choral music in a program of stunningly beautiful and rarely heard works. From the styles and languages of Asia and Europe to the tradition of African American spirituals that inspired pioneering Black composers Nathaniel Dett and Undine Moore Smith to a world premiere by B. E. Boykin celebrating Mary Church Terrell, an activist in the movements for civil rights and women’s suffrage, commissioned by Classical Movements.
