Sing it! A 40th Anniversary Concert
The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop will present its 40th Anniversary Choral Concert on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 4:00 p.m. at the Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church (4th and Independence Avenue, SE). With music director C. Paul Heins, a chorus of community voices will celebrate the 40th anniversary with selections from Robert Convery's cantata, "Songs of Children," based on the writings of children during the Holocaust. Composer Jeffery Watson will conduct his own composition, "Where Every Voice Is Heard," which he wrote on the occasion of CHAW's 30th Anniversary. The Capitol Hill Youth Chorus, the newly-formed Children’s Honor Chorus from Brent Elementary and a cappella ensemble "Not What You Think" will also. The concert is free and open to the public; a free will offering will be made in support of CHAW's tuition assistance program.
Since 1972, CHAW has provided arts education to thousands of children and adults in the Washington region, especially from the greater Capitol Hill area. Through classes, performances, and exhibitions in visual and performing arts, CHAW brings together diverse segments of the population to connect through the transforming power of creativity.
