Benjamin Olinsky is the Artistic Director of the 18th Street Singers, a chorus of young professionals who "live, work and play" on 18th Street. Their concert, "Defining the Times: American Music Through the Generations" presents a survey of American music in all its incarnations--from the hardy pilgrims to the new frontier, from the struggles of slaves and the Civil war to Radio Days to Dolly Parton!
Classical WETA's Nicole Lacroix and Benjamin Olinsky discuss this rich tapestry of Americana and the joys of reaching out to young audiences.
"Defining the Times: American Music Through the Generations" is at Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, Saturday, June 29 at 8 pm. For more information, visit 18thstreetsingers.com.
