Dr. Eric Conway: Washington Post Review of Serenade Festival Concert at the Music Center at Strathmore June 26, 2016

Dr. Eric Conway writes:


On this past Sunday, June 26th at 3PM,  a small contingent of the Morgan State University Choir participated in a concert at the Music Center at Strathmore, in North Bethesda, MD.  This concert featured the best choral groups in the Washington, DC based choral festival Serenade! presented by Classical Movements.  The concert featured groups from all over the world including Latvia, Netherlands, Japan, Italy, and of course the United States.  I always like for my Morgan choirs to hear other ensembles; to see presentations and sounds different than what we are used to hearing - thus expanding our aural palette.  Typically amateur groups are not reviewed, however, when performing at professional venues such as Strathmore and with such an international stage, a reporter from the Washington Post was there to take note of the performances.  Please see attached a link and PDF of the Post review as well as a PDF of the program for the afternoon.
