Festival Details - "Serenade! Washington DC Choral Festival"...

Start: Tuesday, July 14, 2020 6:00PM
End: Monday, July 20, 2020 12:00PM

Honoring the centennial of the most momentous achievement during the struggle for women’s rights in American history, Classical Movements’ 10th annual Serenade! Washington, D.C. Choral Festival (July 14—July 20, 2020) will again look globally with “World Voices for Women: Pioneers, Progress, Purpose”—inviting vocal ensembles of all kinds to celebrate the many international triumphs that women have achieved, while acknowledging how much more remains to be accomplished. 

Our own Eric Daniel Helms New Music Program will commission female-identifying composers to write several new choral works that reflect upon the history of women’s enfranchisement, as well a shine light on current human rights issues around the world.

The latest in our ongoing, conscious efforts to amend the canon by giving voice to composers too long excluded from the repertoire, with the 2020 Serenade! Choral Festival’s “World Voices for Women: Pioneers, Progress, Purpose,” we look forward to what higher mountains we will climb, deeper rivers we will cross and future glass ceilings we shall shatter.

Choirs will get to work with guest conductor, Valérie Sainte-Agathe, Artistic Director of the San Francisco Girls Chorus.
