The Washington Chorus opens its 51st season Friday evening, November 18 at 8:00 PM at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall with the Washington premiere of a major new work by Music Director Julian Wachner. Titled "Come, My Dark Eyed One," the piece for chorus, orchestra and soloists combines passionate and dramatic music with poetry by Emily Dickinson, Alfred Lord Tennyson, e.e. cummings, and the famed 15th century Turkik poet Ali-Shir Nava'i. The concert also includes Mozart's Great Mass in C minor.
Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton spoke with Julian Wachner about his new work.
