The 160 voices of our family of choruses will lift up and celebrate our common humanity through a passionate and joyous exploration of the diversity of musical cultures from around the globe. Congressional Chorus' 30th season comes to a climatic finale as we celebrate the power of music, the international language, to tear down the walls that divide nations. The 160 voices of our family of choruses will lift up and celebrate our common humanity through a passionate and joyous exploration of the diversity of musical cultures from around the globe.

The highlight of the concert will be the Washington, DC premiere of Calling All Dawns, a twelve movement song cycle, in twelve different languages, by Grammy award-winning, Chinese-American composer Christopher Tin. His ground-breaking and unparalleled masterwork is inspired by musical traditions from every corner of our planet. The texts are drawn from a variety of sources, both sacred and secular, including Japanese haiku, Portuguese poetry, Maori proverbs, the Torah, the Latin Mass, and the Bhagavad Gita. It is a lush pulsating, and cinematic musical adventure. Higher Plain Music called it "pure and absolute musical hedonism!" Come explore new musical horizons as we celebrate music without borders!
