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.

The Escher Quartet – Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy

The Escher Quartet

They are joined by cellist and CEWM artistic director Yehuda Hanani and violist Daniel Panner for the magnificent Brahms String Sextet No. 1, which entered popular culture via the soundtrack for various films (Louis Mall’s “Les Amants,” The Piano Teacher, and in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”!). Brahms regarded the string quartet as a hallowed genre and treated it with the same reverence he famously held for the symphony. The Debussy String Quartet is nothing less than a ground-breaking work, with all that Impressionism represents. The program begins with Beethoven’s Op. 18 No. 2, lyrical, playful, and dedicated to Haydn.

Close Encounters With Music will partner with the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center and Classical WMHT-FM to present the series of three concerts October through December filmed live from the Mahaiwe stage and available for everyone to access—The Escher has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textual clarity with a rich, blended sound. A link to stream the event will be available seven days before the premiere. Find the link at mahaiwe.org or on our @closeencounterswithmusic Facebook page.
