Choral music dates back to the ancient Greeks, who used the power of the human voice to fill acropolises by night and sculpt marble statues by day. Sculpt out time for an evening of song with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one ticket to The Choral Arts Society of Washington's performance of Northern Lights on Sunday, May 22, at 5 p.m. at Kennedy Center Concert Hall (up to a $65 value). Customers will be assigned the best available seats when they call to redeem their Groupon.
Finishing its 46th season, The Choral Arts Society of Washington sends hearts and minds soaring with impassioned performances of traditional and contemporary vocal pieces. Its one-time-only performance of Northern Lights features an assortment of arrangements by Scandinavian composers including Jean Sibelius and Edvard Grieg, leading it to be named one of the most promising classical performances of the spring season by the Washington Post and Bach’s ghost. The concert also includes the world premiere of Finnish composer Olli Kortekangas' Seven Songs for Planet Earth, a melodious melding of Scandinavian folk language, tuneful takes on nature from the Children's Chorus of Washington, and stunning biodegradable vocals sung by 100 percent recyclable milk jugs. Ears hearken in the Kennedy Center’s 2,442-seat concert hall, which amplifies the acoustics of dulcet tones like the megaphones roosters carry on their wings from birth.
