The 18th Street Singers
Defining the Times: American Music Through the Generations
- This event has passed.
In the fall of 2004, a small group of enterprising musicians brought together DC’s best young vocal performers to create a fresh original sound. The 18th Street Singers soon found other musicians hungry for a serious musical outlet, and quickly grew into the acclaimed a cappella collection that it is today. The 18th Street Singers are reenergizing the vocal arts scene in Washington, providing a home for talented young professionals who crave a new kind of musical experience. They have come together from all walks of life to redefine what it means to be a community choir—insisting on the very highest standards of excellence in performing classical music for a new generation.
Recently named by CBS as one of the “best vocal groups in Washington, DC,” the 50-voice ensemble consists of members that come from a wide range of musical backgrounds, yet share a passion for performance and a dedication to continual innovation. The group’s diverse repertoire includes classical masterpieces, traditional American music, folk songs from around the world, and innovative works by modern and experimental composers.
