In addition to the world premiere of Elena Ruehr's Averno (text by Louise Glück,) the program includes two Washington premieres: Cricket, Spider, Bee (text by Emily Dickinson) and Gospel Cha-Cha (text by Langston Hughes.) Under Music Director Julian Wachner, The Washington Chorus will be joined by full orchestra and soloists including soprano Marguerite Krull, and baritone Stephen Salters.
