Liszt & Gormley, Gershwin & Degas, Rachmaninoff & Chagall

This summer’s Vocal Colors performance at The Phillips Collection (1600 21st St NW, Washington, DC, near 21st and Q Streets) will take place tomorrow night, June 28. Today, Wolf Trap employees were treated to our dress rehearsal held here at the Center for Education. Vocal Colors concerts are artist-driven, artist-programmed evenings, during which the performers deliver songs of their choice, selected to pair with art in the collection.
