World-renowned choral conductor Philip Brunelle will lead the choirs of the 2012 Serenade! Washington DC Choral Festival in a free concert at The Music Center at Strathmore, Sunday, July 1, 2012 at 4:00 pm. The combined festival choirs will present two works commissioned by Classical Movements, the event's sponsor: an area premiere of Stephen Paulus' "Music," commissioned for Brunelle's VocalEssence ensemble and the recent Chorus America conference in Minneapolis, and a world premiere by Canadian composer Aaron Jensen. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton caught up with Philip Brunelle at Minnesota Public Radio, just before he departed for one choral conference in Milan, Italy, followed by another choral event in Bejing, China.
