Join the Congressional Chorus for its first concert of the 2022-2023 season, Homesong, on Saturday, November 12th at 7:30 p.m. The Chorus’ mission is to perform American music, and this program challenges the boundaries of what is traditionally considered “American,” including works by US immigrant and first-generation composers who draw inspiration.
Some highlights from this concert include a newly commissioned work, Chalo Re Mhaare Des by Gaayatri Kaundinya, which fuses Hindi musical traditions with Western musical traditions. The commission amplifies the work of an emerging composer whose Indian-American identity is underrepresented in the field. Homesong also features guest poet Marjan Naderi, a young Afghan refugee who’s written pieces about her experience and identity.
What: Homesong, presented by the Congressional Chorus featuring special guests
When: Saturday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m.
