Venezuela’s Simon Bolivar Youth Choir Comes to DC, 9/20-21
The Simón Bolívar National Youth Choir of Venezuela will perform two shows in Washington, DC, during the third week of September. The concerts, sponsored by Citgo and the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United States, will pair the 100-member ensemble with New York's Limón Dance Company for "A Celebration of Music and Dance."
The choir is part of Venezuela's famous youth music program, "El Sistema," and will sing music by American and Venezuelan composers such as Randall Thompson and Simón Díaz.
It will be joined the renowned Limón Dance Company for a choreographed performance of Kodály's "Missa Brevis."
In Washington, DC, the performance comes to the Kennedy Center tonight, September 20 and the Inter-American Development Bank on September 21. The latter is a free show.
