Soundscapes: 18th Street Singers Spring Concert

Soundscapes: 18th Street Singers Spring Concert

Sat · June 16, 2018

7:30 pm

$10.00 - $15.00

The 18th Street Singers present “Soundscapes," an exploration of the relationship between space and sound in choral music. Using canons and rounds, works written for multiple choirs and voices, and the acoustics of different venues, “Soundscapes” considers how the spaces and shapes in which music is made change how we listen.

We are especially proud to present the world premiere of Shavon Lloyd's "So Breaks the Sun," the winner of the Singers' 2018 choral composition competition.

Join us Saturday night, June 16th, for an exciting evening of visual art, beer and wine, and casual listening at the Dupont Underground.  

 

18th Street Singers
18th Street Singers
Founded in 2004, the 18th Street Singers is a fifty-voice ensemble of young professionals living, learning, and working in and around our nation's capital. Named after the road along which many of our members live and play, the group's mission is to reinvigorate a new generation of choral music audiences by offering fresh, spirited interpretations of both traditional and contemporary choral works, while insisting on the very highest standards of performance.

Recent performances at the Kennedy Center, Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony (attended by President Barack Obama), and repeat invitations to the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC have highlighted the group's rising reputation in the nation's capital and beyond. Our diverse repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary, including masterpieces for double choir by the likes of Ralph Vaughan Williams and Frank Martin, American spirituals, folk songs from around the globe, and a continued commitment to the music of emerging contemporary composers such as Eric Whitacre and Ola Gjeilo.
