Chorus Sings at World Future Conference 

On Saturday July 23rd the Washington International Chorus sings as a flash mob at the World Future Conference at the Washington Hilton.  Rehearsal time is 1 pm - 3pm with performance at 6 pm.  The MC will begin singing "If Just One Person Believes in You" and 32 members of the chorus will rise from wherever we are sitting in the audience and walk toward the stage singing until we are all on stage.  Great fun!

The chorus is available for other special events in our DC area.  We can sing selections from our own repetoire or other pieces if we have adequate time for rehearsing prior to a performance.  We can also be contracted to sing at large events in which several choruses come together to sing.

Some of the pieces from our recent concerts are on Youtube if anyone wants a preview of our singing.
