Kept Under Glass will celebrate music composed over eight centuries, expressed in styles from medieval chants to classical opera to romantic Lieder to early 20th century works. The four performances will take place across two evenings at Whitman-Walker’s new cultural center, The Corner at Whitman-Walker. Three performers, each in their own bay window, will sing to their audience gathered on the sidewalk on the other side of the glass. Performances will be 30 minutes long with a live projection show designed for each singer and song.
The program will operate within Washington, DC’s health and safety regulations, and social distancing will be monitored on the sidewalk.
No registration is necessary.
Music for the program is by Austrian and German women composers: Hildegard von Bingen, Wilhelmine von Bayreuth, Anna Amalia, Marianna Martines, Corona Schröter, Maria Theresia von Paradis, Bettina von Arnim, Louise Reichardt, Fanny Mendelssohn, Josephine Lang, Clara Schumann, Johanna Müller Hermann, Vilma von Webenau, and Anja Plaschg (Soap&Skin).
