Description

The Capital Hearings: Worlds of Our Creation

September 15, 2018, 8:00 PM

Hello! You see the world like no one else.

We wake up each day with our own dreams, our own fears, and our own perspectives. Some days, we craft with whimsy and abandon, others with heaviness and reflection. We can build together and apart, and toward truth or deception.

This year’s fall concert explores music that speaks to these realities and illusions of perspective: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’s “Pure Imagination,” the magnetic funk of Stevie Wonder, the seductive optimism of Duke Ellington, the incisive commentary of Ted Hearne, and the melodic nostalgia of Sara Bareilles. In The Capital Hearings’ fashion, the music spans hundreds of years, multiple languages, and showcases classical, jazz, and pop a cappella. It draws inspiration from diverse places, including the gothic deep south, the technological enthusiasm of the 1980s, the poetry of Emily Dickinson, and the plight of America’s inner-city schools.

This year’s program also includes three original compositions: the winner of our fifth annual Young Composers Competition, and original works by D.C.-area artist Chris Urquiaga and former Capital Hearings member Yannick Morgan.
