The sixth annual Serenade! Washington, D.C. Choral Festival, June 23-27, 2016, continues on June 25th with a concert at 3:30pm at Asbury Methodist Village (Gaithersburg, MD) featuring Kobra Ensemble (Netherlands), Tucson Girls Chorus (USA), and Ensemble Planeta (Japan). Free performance. Suggested donation -. The Kobra Ensemble consists of Ingrid Doude of Troostwijk, Star Rabbit, Lea Klarenbeek, Lonneke Cones, Saskia For Bach and Pitou Nicolaes. Since its founding in 2010 they have developed a unique style, which is characterized by a diverse musicality and a lively stage presence. With a mix of early and contemporary classical works, folk music and close harmony, Kobra impresses audiences with their amazing chamber music abilities. The ensemble also crosses artistic boundaries by collaborating with other art forms: several costume designers, visual artists, video artists, instrumentalists, composers and arrangers. Ensemble Planeta, a female group of four Japanese singers, is known for their performance of the works of Bach, Brahms, Schubert and other classical composers and traditional European folk music. Their exceptional voices feature non-vibrato style, which takes audiences inside a unique worldview of timeless and cross-genre repertoire. The songs are arranged and produced by Nahoko Kakiage, the recognized creator of classical crossover style of music in Japan. This is the ensembles first visit to the United States. Founded in 1985, the Tucson Girls Chorus is recognized as an outstanding choral education program working with girls from Kindergarten through High School in seven choirs. The two upper choirs tour nationally and internationally, and have produced CDs.
