A Night in Paris

A Night in Paris

Join us for an intimate chamber orchestra performance celebrating the beauty of French music. Our program features Fauré’s delightfully delicate Pavane, as well as Ravel’s stunning orchestral arrangements of Debussy’s Sarabande and Danse. We are delighted that mezzo-soprano Magdalena Wòr will join us for Berlioz’s Les Nuits d’Été. Her voice and musicianship have exactly the kind of dusky warmth needed for a song cycle that follows the course of love: from youthful innocence, to loss and finally renewal. The concert will take a turn towards the surreal with Milhaud’s Le boeuf sur le toit, which portrays a motley crew of characters who frequent a Brazilian bar. Conducted by Victoria Gau

Guest Soloist, Magdalena Wòr

INTERSECTIONS: Go-Go Symphony

Our contribution to this year's INTERSECTIONS festival at Atlas is a reprise of our popular collaboration with Go-Go Symphony. We are delighted to welcome John Devlin back to the C.C.S. podium for this event. Join us to enjoy the funky energy of Go-Go music with the power and precision of a symphony orchestra! 


Want to know more about Go-Go? 

Go-Go music is Washington DC's own sub genre of funk, characterized mainly by relentless percussion and audience participation. The "pocket beat" is the classic swinging go-go beat popularized in the 1970's by Chuck Brown, the "Godfather of Go-Go."
