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

Dutoit Delivers Thrills

The Boston Musical Intelligencer | July 30, 2017

“Female members of the excellent Choral Arts Society of Washington Youth Choir constituted most of the choir of “Soprani e Contralti Enfants” [from Berlioz’ score]; their rich tone … made an ideal match for the ladies of the TFC, supporting complex textures and providing a foundation of pure, clean tone in the outer movements.” – Laura Stanfield Prichard

“A large chorus was amassed for this concert, consisting of singers from the Choral Arts Society of Washington, the Washington Chorus, the Capitol Hill Chorale, the Fairfax Choral Society, George Mason University, the Heritage Signature Chorale, and the Reston Chorale. The ad hoc collective sang with more verve than polish, but the diction came across clearly…” – Charles T. Downey
