For the third year, The Washington Chorus presents New Music for a New Age, featuring choral works by living composers. This year’s program features the music of award-winning American composer Elena Ruehr on Sunday, April 3 at 5:00pm, at the National Presbyterian Church. 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. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton spoke to Ms. Ruehr about her works, and life as a composer.
