Sponsored by: Third Practice

Join DC's newest professional ensemble Third Practice as we celebrate one of our nation's great musical heritages: early American hymnody. Our program will trace the genre's origins from Calvinist Europe to the early colonies before exploring how contemporary composers draw on these classic tunes for inspiration. Highlights include a work by local composer Mark Marion, as well as the use of live electronic delays in Marshall’s atmospheric Hymnodic Delays.
