2017-2018 Season

Welcome to our 2017-2018 season, a cornucopia of riches for both connoisseurs of and newcomers to the endless enchantment of classical song. Our performers include singers and pianists both popular with and known by area audiences, stars on the rise, and "rare bird sightings" of artists whose only prior Washington appearances have been under our auspices. The music they have programmed ranges from beloved classics of the German, French, and Russian literatures to a celebration of Leonard Bernstein on the occasion of his centenary, and a newly commissioned work by the exciting young American composer Gregory Spears. All seven of our subscription concerts take place at the Terrace Theater of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, our artistic "home" since 2010, to which we return following a year-long renovation that promises our patrons increased accessibility.

The 2017-2018 Vocal Arts DC season is here! We're excited to be back in the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater following a 16-month renovation. Now is a great time to purchase your tickets!
