Serenade! Washington DC Choral Festival

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 brand-new choral works celebrating the legacy of six key suffragists.

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.

Undine Smith Moore’s Choral interpretation: Mother to Son

NYCHORAL presents Mother to Son, the fourth featured production in Our Voices 2020-2021 Season of multidisciplinary digital productions of acapella choral works
Premiering April 6, this production features a performance of Undine Smith Moore’s powerful choral interpretation of Langston Hughes’ poem Mother to Son in collaboration with choreographer Francesca Harper and featuring Mezzo-soprano Zoie Reams.

Incorporating elements of dance, story-telling, visual art, and music Mother to Son reflects on a poem that paints the portrait of black life in America and Moore’s 1955 composition by way of inspiration of black spirituals and folk music. This collaboration, which also features dancers Hope Clarke and Ricardo Hartley and artist Alshante Baker shines a light on history, storytelling and activism in the context of the Black narrative of yesterday and today.
