Join the Strathmore Children’s Chorus concert as they perform songs which stir the soul and lift the spirit. A residency with Dr. Rollo Dilworth, internationally lauded composer, conductor and professor at Temple University, will culminate in this thrilling program. The performance centers on an exploration of the American spiritual, framed by a selection of works from other traditions which harness the power of the spirit.
Dr. Dilworth will join SCC as guest conductor, along with the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras, conducted by Kristofer Sanz, and Children of the Gospel Choir, a program of Washington Performing Arts. The concert will feature the world premieres of two new works by Dr. Dilworth, one orchestral and one choral, which have been commissioned by Strathmore Children’s Chorus and MCYO. Dr. Dilworth’s compositions have sold over one million copies and are performed at major venues throughout the world. Join artistic director Christopher G. Guerra and over 250 singers and instrumentalists for an inspirational evening of music guaranteed to delight all in attendance.
