On Monday, July 8, 2019 at 6:00 PM on stage at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, the 9th annual Serenade! Choral Festival will conclude with a truly grand finale: individual performances from all participating ensembles, as well the 2019 Serenade! mass choir, led by the 2019 recipient of the Robert Shaw Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Choral Directors Association, Doreen Rao. Dr. Rao will conduct her second Serenade! mass choir in the world premiere of Refuge—a brand-new work by internationally lauded soprano, composer and Director of Vocal Studies at the University of Chicago, Patrice Michaels—commissioned by Classical Movements’ own Eric Daniel Helms New Music Program.
