Kent Tritle, guest conductor Danielle Talamantes, soprano Sara Murphy, mezzo-soprano Alex Richardson, tenor Matt Boehler, bass Written as Mozart approached death, his Requiem provides profound moments of great vastness and sublime tenderness. Centered on the theme of light, Morten Lauridsen’s “non-liturgical requiem” emanates hope, reassurance, and serenity.

Celebrate the warm spirit of the season in a majestic setting. A well-loved Washington, DC holiday tradition, this concert includes Christmas favorites and a festive carol sing-along. The program will feature a newly commissioned carol by popular British composer Paul Mealor.

SUNDAY, MARCH 4 4:00 PM Donald Nally, guest conductor Thomas Mesa, cello Our musical journey follows this lyrical prose by writer Pascal Quignard. Hymns, chants, and anthems invoke awe in the brilliance of the stars and earth, inviting wonder and contemplation.

Without solitude, without the test of time, without the passion for silence, without the excitation and retention of the whole body, without a frightened stumbling, without wandering into a region of shade and invisibility, without memory of animality, without melancholy, without isolation in melancholy, there is no joy.

Lawrence Loh, guest conductor Demarre McGill, flute Alexandra Loutsion, soprano Laurel Semerdjian, mezzo-soprano William Davenport, tenor Reginald Smith, Jr., baritone Leonard Bernstein was an active advocate for peace and nuclear disarmament throughout his life. Through music, video, photos, and spoken word, we honor Bernstein, the humanitarian.

On Friday, January 19, 1973, the eve of Richard Nixon’s second inauguration, Bernstein conducted “A Concert for Peace” at Washington National Cathedral. The piece was Haydn’s Mass in Time of War. The concert began at 9:00 pm – the exact time that inaugural concerts were scheduled to begin at the Kennedy Center. Bernstein and the Cathedral staff welcomed an overflowing audience of nearly 18,000 people in the building and on the lawn. The concert was a plea for peace in a turbulent time.
