SCHEDULE CHANGE (January 13, 2 PM EST): Out of an abundance of caution amid the current conditions of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, Washington Performing Arts and the Choral Arts Society of Washington have rescheduled the January 30th presentation of Living the Dream...Singing the Dream. The new date at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall is April 10, 2022. Current ticket holders to the original January 30 event are being contacted directly concerning their options at this time—including using their current tickets for admission to the April 10 event. A total of three 2021/22 events have been rescheduled at this time; for more information on our rescheduling of select events, please see the open letter from President & CEO Jenny Bilfield. We apologize for any inconvenience but thank you for your ongoing support!

The long-running, ever-popular tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns to in-person performance(!) as the combined choirs of Washington Performing Arts and Choral Arts celebrate the power of music, collaboration, and the human spirit.
