Choral Arts Humanitarian Award
Choral Arts Humanitarian Award is presented annually to an individual who embodies the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s message of nonviolent struggle for civil rights, equality and justice. Each year an extraordinary recipient is selected and honored by The Choral Arts Society of Washington at Living the Dream…Singing the Dream, the annual choral tribute to the legacy of Dr. King and co-presented by The Choral Arts Society of Washington and Washington Performing Arts. Led by Scott Tucker, Choral Arts Artistic Director, and Stanley J. Thurston, Artistic Director of the Washington Performing Arts Gospel Choirs, the annual choral tribute brings the combined force of more than 300 voices celebrating the power of music and the triumph of the human spirit in a concert that celebrates the past and embraces the hope of the future.
