Calling all voice parts for the 18th Street Singers!

This year, the 18th Street Singers were voted Best Local Choral Group in the Washington City Paper for the second year in a row, performed pieces in twelve languages at the Smithsonian, and finished our season by singing back-up for Hugh Jackman at the Capital One Center.
It wasn't our typical season -- but we're always finding ways to bring choral music to a wider and younger audience. We seek to program concerts that move our members and our audiences by unabashedly mixing the best of genres. We sing music that you think of as "traditional" choral music, we find lesser-known gems, and we prioritize amplifying the voices, composers, and themes that are often missing at classical music concerts.

We are an all-volunteer organization (including all artistic and management positions), but many of our members have studied music professionally or are paid singers in other ensembles -- they come to us for a singing community. Our members come from many backgrounds: some of us have sung our entire lives in church or temple choirs, some were in high school and collegiate a cappella groups, and others have sung in glee clubs and choirs. Some of us bring our kids to rehearsal, to take advantage of deeply-discounted child care. Some of us grew up here, and some of us are new to the area, but we come together to build a community and share our love for singing with others!
