Wed, January 10, 2024 – 7:30 pm Concert in 34 days

Amazing Grace: In Paradisum

PostClassical Ensemble’s seasonal favorite returns with a program for chorale and orchestra that celebrates the universal expression of the human spirit through music. Amazing Grace, perhaps the most universal of folk hymns, has inspired people all around the world for centuries.

This new year, PostClassical Ensemble (PCE) features works by George Walker, Gustav Mahler, Margaret Bonds, Luciano Berio, and the D.C. premiere of Jeffrey Mumford’s extraordinary cello concerto with soloist Annie Jacobs-Perkins, winner of the 2023 Pierre Fournier Award. ‍

As a special tribute, PCE will present Mr. Mumford with PCE’s American Roots Artist Award for his outstanding contributions to the American music. Bring the family, and join us in singing Amazing Grace with the whole ensemble at the end of the evening.
