At its meeting on June 14, 2017, the CCW Board of Directors elected Laura Kopp to be the next President of the Board. Her term as president starts August 1, 2017. Laura succeeds Nancy Ortmeyer Kuhn, who served three years as President. Previously, Laura served as Secretary of the Board and is a member of the Executive Committee. She was instrumental in the launch of CCW's rehearsal site in Alexandria in September, 2016. Laura's son, William, has been in CCW for four years. 

I am excited to continue my working relationship with Laura Kopp as she assumes the role of President of the Board. She has been a wonderful steward of the organization, and I know she will bring new energy and insight to shaping CCW’s future.

"The best CARMINA chorus I've ever heard live"

[Soprano Amy Owens] was matched beautifully by the sweet voices of the Children’s Chorus of Washington in the love section ...

The combined choral groups exhibited fine intonation and tight ensemble. Falletta devoted much of her conducting energies to the chorus, which paid off handsomely in a performance of uncommon effectiveness; the best Carmina chorus I’ve ever heard live, actually.

Under the baton of guest conductor Grant Gershon, the National Symphony Orchestra played with zest from behind the sloping stage and backdrop of Roman columns and oversized picture frames. With the Washington Chorus and the Children’s Chorus of Washington in support, the instrumentalists kept the evening moving at a consistent clip.

An Evening on the Potomac

We are pleased to report that CCW's Spring Gala was a success. For Artistic Director Margaret Clark, it was a family affair as she was joined on stage by her brother, noted baritone Christòpheren Nomura, who delighted all in attendance with his powerful renditions of songs by Copland, Bolcom, and a very special piece from the Broadway musical Allegiance, which he performed last year alongside George Takei and Lea Salonga.

Thank you to all of the choristers who performed, and the parents and friends new and old who came out to support the important programming we do at CCW. We look forward to another year of music-making thanks to your seemingly endless reserves of time and treasure.
