Fabulous concert!

Meet the Vocalists, pt. 1: Colleen Daly is a Washington, D.C. native and is hailed by The Washington Post as a “dramatically powerful” young singer. With quite a repertoire under her belt, we are excited to welcome Colleen Daly (soprano) to the stage!

Look at that wonderful choir!

We Bet You Can Guess This Familiar Tune...
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you (in a somewhat unconventional manner) the tune that will be stuck in your head until the concert April 12th! If anyone in your life claims they don't know any classical music, prove them wrong with this one musical line....
