Voices of Our Nation: Celebrating the Choral Tradition
To kick off its Voices of Our Nation festival, the Kennedy Center presents a citywide opening event featuring 50 choruses from the D.C. region that will sing at sites all across the city, from its iconic memorials to Metro stations. At the same time, dozens of choruses perform throughout the Kennedy Center, including outside on the plaza, on the Metro shuttles, and at other locations throughout the facility. The choruses perform a variety of styles from barbershop and madrigals to classical and gospel.
