The Choral Arts Society of Washington opens their 2013-14 season Sunday afternoon, November 10th at 4:00pm at the Kennedy Center with a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Titled "Legacy and Life: A Musical and Visual Reflection," the performance features the East Coast premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Steven Stucky's Take Him, Earth, dedicated to Kennedy, and Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem, enhanced by visual images of Kennedy's life and times.
Choral Arts Society's Artistic Director Scott Tucker spoke with Classical WETA's Deborah Lamberton about the concert, and the role that multi-media plays in presenting masterworks like Verdi's Requiem.
