Washington Master Chorale's March 5th concert (at National Presbyterian Church) is called Time and Memory. It includes the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Pulitzer Prize winning American composer Jennifer Higdon, plus John Corigliano's Fern Hill and other pieces on nostalgia, love, and immortality. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chats with Master Chorale Artistic Director Thomas Colohan about the Chorale's goal to add new works to the repertoire, the thrill of commissioning and premiering a new piece, and the inclusive and welcoming themes of the March 5th concert.
