CHC's 29th Season: The Paths Forward

Featuring songs that celebrate moving forward together with joy

The Capitol Hill Chorale celebrates its 29th season — and a return to singing together after a long separation — with “The Paths Forward.” This series of four concerts is dedicated to finding joy in each other, in song, in performing and in listening. Each path brings listeners on a journey from loss and remembrance to comfort, healing, and joy.

The Path of Solace (November 12, 2021)

A concert of solace and contemplation. Works included will be “Lay a Garland” by Robert Pearsall, “Three Songs” by Philip Glass and “Angel Band” by Shawn Kirchner.

The Path of Tradition (December 4 and 5, 2021)

A concert of old holiday favorites and new literature for the season featuring “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear” by Dr. Valerie Capers, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Doug Andrews, “I Sing of a Maiden” by Kevin Allen, and “No la Debemos Dormir” by Christina Whitten Thomas.

The Path of Joy (March 19 and 20, 2022)

A concert celebrating the simple, yet long longed for, art of choral singing. Selections will include “Ye Shall have a Song” by Randall Thompson and “Ego Flos Campi” by Clemens non Papa.

A New Path (June 4 and 5, 2022)

A concert devoted to songs by women and composers of color. Selections will include “Resignation” by Florence B. Price, “Hold On” by Margaret Bonds and “Don’t You Let Nobody Turn You Round” by Lena McLin.
