WHCO February: Melodies Pour Out of Me - at Fort Washington Collegiate Church image

Enter the flow state.

It’s the summer of 1889, and Antonín Dvořák is on fire. He’s just about to begin composing what would become his eighth symphony, and he writes to his friend with unabashed confidence: “It’s going unexpectedly easily… the melodies simply pour out of me!” Our February concert features melodically bold music from three centuries. Cerón’s “A la caída de la tarde” (At the End of the Afternoon) is a beautifully nostalgic and flowing soundscape from the Dominican classical tradition. Music Director Chris Whittaker presents a new violin concerto for former WHCO-concertmaster Amos Fayette. The concert concludes with the sublime and melodious 8th Symphony of Dvořák.

On Saturday, Friends of WHCO join us for a post-concert reception featuring a local beer tasting.
