Washington Mens' Camerata concert

  • 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Terrace Theater, 2700 F Street, NW, Washington, DC
A mainstay of Cornell’s presence in the nation’s capital is the Washington Men’s Camerata, which has been keeping the tradition of male choruses thriving in the area for 29 years.
In 1984, five young attorneys at a D.C. law firm discovered that they had all sung in glee clubs and missed making music. Some of them joined an existing mixed chorus on Capitol Hill but really wanted to be part of a men’s chorus.

Brad Spencer, a 1979 Cornell grad, and Audi Peale of Harvard were the prime organizers of the Camerata in 1984. In the ensuing years, they recruited fellow alumni, and at one point 13 Cornell alums sang with the chorus. Singing with the Camerata now are Scott Spencer '71, Ned Goldberg ’75, Bob Harris ’80, Bob McKinless ’48 and Brad Spencer (a long-time member of the Cornell Glee Club’s Advisory Board.)

You can see your fellow alums and the rest of the Camerata at 7:30 pm. on Sunday, June 2, at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater. Directed by Frank Albinder, the chorus will sing “The Great American Songbook,” which will include music by Gershwin, Rodgers, Kern, Porter and more, with special guests soprano Rosa Lamoreaux and the Rock Creek Singers.
