5. U.S. Marine Band and Choral Arts Society of Washington. Music Center at Strathmore

The spit and polish musicians of the U.S. Marine Band joined the Choral Arts Society of Washington to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Walt Whitman. The program included a world premiere by the composer Dominick DiOrio, plus rarities by Randall Thompson and William Schuman. Rounding out the unusual repertory was a larger-than-life rendition of Berlioz’s infrequently performed Grande symphonie funèbre et triomphale, honoring the 150th anniversary of the composer’s death.

Choral Artists play with tradition

The Ledger | December 20, 2019
“Eja! Eja! (Joy! Joy!)” was written in 2005 for the 40th anniversary of the Choral Arts Society of Washington and to commemorate the retirement of Fred Begun, principal timpanist for the National Symphony Orchestra. It combines texts as diverse as poetry by 19th-century English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson and 18th-century student of mysticism John Byram, along with what Craven calls “a little bit of ‘Phantom Menace.’ It’s a well balanced piece with some interesting harmony. It’s a fun romp.”
