Choral Arts Society goes big with Monteverdi “Vespers”

Washington Classical Review | November 19, 2017

“…conductor Scott Tucker led just such a grandly scaled performance of the work Saturday afternoon with the Choral Arts Society of Washington, which last programmed this work in 1974. As lighting approximated the fall of dusk in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, the massed musicians made a good case for their interpretation.” -Charles T. Downey

In J. Reilly Lewis’s footsteps

The Washington Post | November 17, 2017

“As part of a new generation of choral conductors in Washington — Christopher Bell has just taken over the Washington Chorus, and Scott Tucker is in his sixth year at Choral Arts — Fox is also part of what appears to be a gradual sea change in the field from the old-school choral conductor a la Norman Scribner, who gave his life to chorus work, to conductors who also maintain careers guesting with orchestras and opera companies.” -Anne Midgette

Hot Tickets!

The Georgetowner | September 28, 2017

“Mary Bird, The Georgetowner’s veteran social correspondent, also spoke up: ‘I am not the best on choosing the hottest gala. I think it is a matter of what people like and want to support: the arts, medical research, food, animal welfare, etc. The National Symphony season-opening gala, Ambassadors Ball, Harman Center for the Arts gala, Meridian Ball, Knock Out Abuse Gala and Fight Night, Lombardi Gala and the Choral Arts Society of Washington’s Holiday Concert and Gala are all important. The Kennedy Center Honors will be interesting with the first family not attending.'” -Selma Khenissi

BWW Review: BERNSTEIN ON BROADWAY at Kennedy Center

broadway world | September 26, 2017

“The concert’s other example of lesser known songs was a stunning choral arrangement of “Build My House” from Peter Pan and “Take Care of This House” from Bernstein’s ill-fated 1976 collaboration with Alan Jay Lerner called 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It was performed by the Choral Arts Society, which is one of the area’s best vocal groups. With this number, the audience had chance to learn for themselves why this is true.” – Elliot Lanes

Bernstein on Broadway Review: an exquisite evening

DC Theatre Scene | September 25, 2017

“Both the ensemble and the Choral Arts Society deserve kudos, too. The ensemble players had their brightest moment in the spotlight performing the “Ballet at the Village Vortex” from Wonderful Town (yes, they can sing, act, and dance beautifully). The Choral Arts Society contributed to several numbers, most notably a glorious rendition of Candide’s “Make Our Garden Grow” that closed the show.” – Steven McKnight
