"...evenly balanced throughout the men's tonal spectrum, luxuriantly blended, gloriously full and rich, yet crisp and nimble when the music demanded it." --The Washington Post
The Washington Men's Camerata was founded by its members in 1984 to perform, promote and preserve the rich legacy of men's choral music. In addition to its regular subscription series, which since 1994 has included annual performances at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Camerata has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra (Christopher Hogwood, Guest Conductor) and the National Gallery Orchestra (George Manos, Music Director); at the Smithsonian Institution; the Embassy of the Russian Federation; the National Building Museum; Harvard, Princeton, and Rutgers Universities; and the White House. The Camerata has colleborated with internationally renowned artists including soprano Phyllis Bryn-Julson, baritone John Shirley-Quirk, and the Mark Morris Dance Group. Listeners nationwide have heard the Camerata on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," "Performance Today" and "Pipe Dreams." The Camerata is now directed by Frank Albinder.
