The Ravishing Hour: Treasures of the French Choral Tradition (McLean, VA)
Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
We return to Saint Luke Catholic Church in McLean as part of their "Music in McLean" series with a ravishing evening of exquisite French music. The concert will highlight well known and rarely heard gems of the impressionist and modern repertoire, including Lili Boulanger’s “Soir Sur La Plaine” and excerpts from Maurice Duruflé’s Quatre Motets sur des thèmes grégoriens.
The programs will also feature art songs by Boulanger and Debussy, and appearances by Saint Luke's own Paul Skevington who will accompany the Chorale in dramatic works for organ and chorus.

Founded in October 2009, the Washington Master Chorale is a semiprofessional chorus in Washington, D.C., that seeks to advance American choral excellence by combining professional artistry with the written word, and to contribute new American works to the choral canon by facilitating the creation of new high-caliber choral works. The Chorale holds itself to the highest standards of music-making by combining the efforts of professional singers with those of rigorously selected volunteers.
