On June 5, Mark Ohnmacht was presented the “Ovation” Award for Outstanding Choral Music at the Clarendon Ballroom. He follows in the distinguished footsteps of previous honorees J. Reilly Lewis, Robert Shafer and Norman Scribner. The Choralis Foundation, founded by Artistic Director Gretchen Kuhrmann in 2000, is dedicated to nurturing a passion for choral music in our area, which one guest speaker termed the “choral capital of the United States,” through offering excellence in choral performance and providing educational outreach. This year’s recipient said, “It’s great hanging around choral people,” and, “my favorite musical instrument is the human voice.” The Choral Arts Society of Washington’s Artistic Director Scott Tucker led the on tune crowd in two musical tributes. Guests departed with a wine glass festooned with a page of sheet music
