About the Serenade! Choral Festival:
Established in 2011 and hailed this summer by the Washington Post's Anne Midgette as “the most genuinely international ensemble I've ever heard, apart from the Olympic Games,” Classical Movements’ Serenade! Choral Festival is an exuberant celebration of choral music from around the world, offering unforgettable, life-changing experiences for both singers and audiences alike.
Presented free to the public, since its inception, Serenade! has showcased more than 75 choirs from some 30 countries to enthusiastic audiences at prestigious venues throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
Once again co-presented by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the 8th annual Serenade! will honor the 100th anniversary of the birth of South African revolutionary, politician and philanthropist, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.
From Monday, June 25 to Monday, July 2, 2018, youth and adult choirs hailing from nations sharing President Mandela’s prized notions of “Hope, Justice & Unity” will perform collaborative concerts and exchange cultures through shared workshops and side-by-side rehearsals with select American ensembles, all while participating in community outreach projects across the region.
Featuring 5, multi-choral performances on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage—as well as a mass choir finale concert conducted by Scott Tucker, Artistic Director of the Choral Arts Society of Washington, in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on Sunday, July 2—Serenade! choirs will perform 7 additional concerts at stunning and historic venues in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
