Choral Arts Society of Washington founder and artistic director Norman Scribner opens the ensemble's 46th season with "Choral Music 101: A Guided Tour Through Norman's Choral Playlist." This two-hour concert on Sunday afternoon November 14th at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center offers a musical tryptich that wends from plainsong through to the 20th century. From masterworks by Renaissance composers William Byrd and Claudio Monteverdi to Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms and Wagner, then on to Igor Stravinsky, Carl Orff, John Tavener, and Morten Lauridsen, your onstage guides will be conductor Norman Scribner and Classical WETA's Deborah Lamberton, who spoke with Norman about his vision for this one-of-a-kind concert.
