Description

The Washington Chorus’ Resilience digital choral experience highlights the power of music and the human spirit. In collaboration with visual artist Camilla Tassi and narrator Shannon Finney, the experience includes a world premiere excerpt from the TWC commissioned work Here's The Thing by acclaimed composer (and former TWC Artistic Director) Julian Wachner and Rome Prize-winning poet Samiya Bashir which features The Washington Chorus and Sphinx's EXIGENCE Vocal Ensemble accompanied by Wei-Han Wu; Ralph Vaughan Williams' sublime “Serenade to Music” featuring TWC soloists and violinist Akemi Takayama; and a stirring setting of Rollo Dilworth's “Freedom's Plow” featuring Dr. Dilworth on piano and guest tenor soloist LaVonte Heard.
