The Choral Arts Society of Washington presents: Into the Light


Explore a world of immersive soundscapes and projections featuring resonance and sound-painting that will envelop the audience. The program will make use of the shimmering acoustics of the Dupont Underground with Steve Reich’s Different Trains, a choral and double string quartet arrangement of Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, and a new piece by Artistic Director Scott Tucker specifically composed for the acoustics of the venue. Other works will feature unconventional methods of singing and instrument playing known as extended musical techniques. The Underground is embedded in the heart of the city: easily accessible and representative of the melding of art with everyday life.
