Twenty years ago, a Washington DC doctor named Gerald Perman had a vision to bring world-class song recitals to the nation's capital. Today, Vocal Arts DC presents both internationally-renowned soloists and emerging artists in concert. Classical WETA's Nicole Lacroix talks with Vocal Arts DC president Dan Silver about the organization's history, and its America Sings Festival, taking place now through June 4, 2010. One of the festival highlights is a free concert Saturday afternoon, April 10th from 2:00 - 5:00 at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.
