Remembering J. Reilly Lewis 1944 - 2016

Board President Report

Board President Report

Greetings to all of our singer members and donor members, I am pleased to share our 2015/16 Annual Report with you. This report gives us a chance to share an update on the artistic and financial health of our organization. It also is an opportunity for dialogue. As a member, we welcome your comments and feedback and encourage you to continue to support and remain actively involved in the work of the Cathedral Choral Society. The 2015/16 season was our 74th season and it was my 2nd season as Board President. It was a season of notable moments and important successes. In October, in the spirit of celebrating “creation,” we partnered with environment and sustainability oriented organizations for our opening performance of Haydn’s The Creation. Our Christmas carol commission from British composer James Whitbourn was well received and has since been featured on a recording by the Westminster Williamson Voices. In February, we partnered with the Washington Bach Consort on an all-Vivaldi program. This was only our 2nd collaboration with WBC and a unique opportunity for Reilly to work with both his organizations. Also in February, we presented our 11th Annual High School Festival with Guest Director Captain Curtis Kinzey from the U.S. Army Chorus. This year’s festival continued to build on the good work choir directors are doing in schools each and every day. In April, we were honored to work with Septime Webre and The Washington Ballet for seven performances of Carmina Burana at the Kennedy Center. Finally, our season ended with an all-Beethoven program featuring piano soloist Brian Ganz in the Choral Fantasy. Working with Brian was a long-time wish for Reilly and the two musicians greatly enjoyed working together. The 2015/16 season was a season of artistic success, welcoming new audience and chorus members, important organizational accomplishments, and warm camaraderie within the chorus. It was also a season of great loss. Suddenly and unexpectedly, in June we lost our beloved Music Director of 31 years. Reilly has been the heart and soul of the Cathedral Choral Society, inspiring us all with his musical artistry and passion. His warmth and whimsical personality has created a community of choristers who care deeply about making music together. This has been a time of deep mourning for us even as we work to continue to strengthen this organization he cared so deeply about. This annual report looks back and reports on last season. As I write this report we are also looking forward to a music director search, stronger ties to Washington National Cathedral, and concluding work on a new strategic plan. I look forward to reporting to you next year on our 75th Anniversary and on our progress towards achieving the important goals facing the Cathedral Choral Society today. Thank you for your important and ongoing support.

Ernest Abbott, Board President

Reilly Lewis J. Reilly J. Lewis 1944-2016


“We grieve with Reilly’s family and all of Washington. We have lost a true maestro and friend. Countless musicians have known the gift of Reilly’s guiding hand and unfailing support. Untold thousands have been blessed by his artistry and generous spirit. ...” - Right Reverend Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop of Washington

J. Reilly Lewis, the founding Music Director of Washington Bach Consort and the Music Director of the Cathedral Choral Society, died unexpectedly on Thursday, June 9, at his home in Arlington, VA. He was 71. Reilly was beloved in the Washington, DC music community. He was a vibrant, talented musician, passionate about his work, known for his generosity of spirit and joyful soul by his many friends, family, and everyone with whom he came into contact. He deeply loved music and people and was thrilled to be able to dedicate his life to both. In 1985, Lewis was appointed Music Director of the Cathedral Choral Society, the 140-voice symphonic chorus-in-residence at Washington National Cathedral. Under his leadership, the chorus delivered notable performances at the Cathedral, the Kennedy Center, Strathmore, and Wolf Trap, as well as nine recordings. Lewis was committed to developing the careers of young soloists and composers. He commissioned over twenty-one new works for chorus from composers including John Tavener, Libby Larsen, John Rutter, and Dominick Argento, among others. Among Lewis’ many honors are Washingtonian Magazine’s Music Hall of Fame and Washingtonian of the Year, the University Club of Washington’s Distinguished Washingtonian Award for the Arts, Special Recognition Mayor’s Arts Award for contributions to the arts and cultural community of Washington, the Shenandoah Conservatory’s Medal of Excellence for Outstanding Leadership in the Performing Arts, and Yale University’s Cultural Leadership Citation. In 2014 he received an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the Virginia Theological Seminary. Born in 1944, Lewis began his musical career at the age of eight as a member of the Junior Boys Choir at Washington National Cathedral. He received his bachelor’s degree from Oberlin Conservatory and master’s and doctoral degrees from The Juilliard School. Lewis dedicated his life to music and to transforming the lives of others through music. In his own words:

“I believe in the power of music to create community - to touch, and to heal, and to transform. I’ve seen people with the most diverse backgrounds come together in one place and be touched by the hand of God through the inspiration - the genius - of Bach or Brahms or Verdi or Mozart. That power to bring people together isn’t restricted to music, but music is my language.” 2

“Conductor J. Reilly Lewis emphasized the openhearted humanity of the music, molding phrases with warmth and historically informed clarity of texture…The chorus displayed its customary fine blend and purity of tone.”

Inspiring performances

Inspiring performances

It was a complete sensory experience to see these amazing performers in such a spectacular venue. I was captivated from beginning to end. ...It was a profound experience. I hope to come back in the future to see more shows.

The 2015/16 season was billed as A Singular Season. Each performance this season featured one iconic composer, including our collaboration with The Washington Ballet. Haydn, Vivaldi, Orff, and Beethoven. This traditional programming approach celebrated the music of these composers for both the audience and chorus. We were pleased to share the stage with wonderful guest soloists, the Washington Bach Consort, the Children’s Chorus of Washington in Joan Gregoryk’s final year as Music Director, and many orchestra members who joined us this season.

Excellence in choral Excellence in choral singing

I wasn’t expecting the camaraderie that I have felt in this choir. I have made good friends, and belonging to this choir has become a real highlight in my life!

In the 2015/16 season we had an exciting infusion of new singers and worked to ensure that from the audition experience to the singer orientation, new singers felt welcomed and a part of the group. A highlight of the year for the chorus was our participation in The Washington Ballet’s production of Orff’s Carmina Burana. The season was an artistic success for the chorus and ended with a wonderful esprit de corps. The loss of Reilly in June was shocking and brought the chorus together unexpectedly for his funeral service. 5

In the 2015/16 season we were pleased to see continued audience growth.

In October of 2015 we collaborated with local environmental organizations at our opening concert featuring Haydn’s The Creation. In December, our programming included Family Joy, a matinee for families with young children. This program encourages children to listen and sing and includes a host and ASL interpretation.

My students loved learning the material and working under Captain Kinzey.

In February, we presented our 11th annual High School Choir Festival. This Festival is distinctive in the region, as it is the only festival which brings together DC’s public, private, and charter schools in a collaborative choral experience. This year’s festival was led by Guest Director Captain Curtis Kinzey from the U.S. Army Chorus. Students spent the day in rehearsals and workshops and presented a free-admission concert at the Cathedral in the evening.
