Watch Frank Albinder and the Washington Men’s Camerata take us through a survey of music by Barber, Beach, Fine, Foote, Weber, Wagner and more! This program of music for men’s chorus by American and German composers is drawn mostly from music that the Library holds in manuscript. From the zany McCord’s Menagerie of Irving Fine to the beautiful and little-known So Sweet is She by Patty Stair, this repertoire has a lot to offer. BONUS: You can join James Wintle of the Music Division in a webinar for a special behind-the-scenes look at this music at 1pm ET on February 21. Register for “Music for Men’s Chorus at the Library of Congress” here, all are welcome!
This concert was made possible with the generous support of the Irving and Verna Fine Fund in the Library of Congress.
