2016-2017 Season


Engaging Our City Through Lively, Innovative & 

Multi-Sensory Performances

We close our 30th season by going international with "world music" by
American composers as we celebrate our common humanity through
the diversity of our cultures.

The highlight of the concert will be the DC premiere of “Calling All Dawns”
by Grammy award-winning composer Christopher Tin. This 12-movement
work is inspired by a variety of sources, both sacred and secular:
Japanese haiku, Maori proverbs, Torah, Bhagavad Gita, and many more. 

Higher Plain Music called it "pure and absolute musical hedonism!"
