The Washington International Chorus will join a large group of choruses from the metro area to sing Christmas Carols at the Annual Holiday Sing-A-Long on Saturday December 3, 2016 from 4-6 pm. Bring your family and friends to the afternoon concert. The event is free but get there early to find seating and wear warm clothes since it is outside.
Chorus members wear warm clothes and bring an LED candle and be at the stage door by 3 pm.
Fall rehearsals begin Tuesday, August 30th from 7-9 pm at the Universalist National Church at the corner of 16th and S St NW in downtown Washington DC. The chorus is non-auditioned although it helps to have some background in singing. Anyone over age 18 is welcome to come to a rehearsal and see if we are the right chorus for you.
If you have questions, call Caroline Sparks, chorus President at 202-236-3743.
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.
