Meet our new
Artistic Director, Christopher Bell

A three-time nominated and two-time Grammy Award winner, the 200-voice Washington Chorus is one of the foremost symphonic choruses in the nation. Noted for the superb artistry of its performances and recordings of the entire range of the choral repertoire, TWC presents an annual subscription series at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, regularly performs at the invitation of the National Symphony Orchestra, and is frequently featured in other venues such as the Music Center at Strathmore in Maryland and Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Virginia. 

The Washington Chorus opened its first season under new artistic director Christopher Bell Wednesday, and a new edge and urgency pervaded the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.
