The Mutual Inspirations Festival, which celebrates Dvorak's birth anniversary last month and his American connections, concludes Friday, October 28th, 2011 with the Cathedral Choral Society performing Dvorak's Te Deum, as well as Janacek's equally festive Glagolitic Mass. Classical WETA's David Ginder chats with Cathedral Choral Society Music Director J. Reilly Lewis about the concert, and about moving the performance from Washington National Cathedral to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception because of the ongoing repairs at the Cathedral following our recent earthquake.
