Washington National Opera: Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program Recital


The inaugural evening of the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program's recital series will be held in the Great Hall of The Kreeger Museum on Saturday, October 21. The series offers the opportunity to hear emerging operatic talents perform in a more intimate setting, without the trappings of sets, lighting, and costumes.

The intimate relationships between voice and piano, poetry and music will be featured in repertoire inspired by the Museum collection, illuminating the connections between creative artists across different genres. The Director of the DCYAP, Robert Ainsley, will introduce and accompany the program.

This program is generously funded by Jacqueline Badger Mars.

The Ying Quartet with Billy Childs

The Ying Quartet


The Ying Quartet occupies a position of unique prominence in the classical music world, combining brilliantly communicative performances with a fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today's world.

Now in its second decade, the Quartet has established itself as an ensemble of the highest musical qualifications. Their performances regularly take place in many of the world’s most important concert halls, from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House; at the same time, the Quartet’s belief that concert music can also be a meaningful part of everyday life has also drawn the foursome to perform in settings as diverse as the workplace, schools, juvenile prisons, and the White House.

This performance will feature jazz pianist and composer Billy Childs, one of the most diversely prolific and acclaimed artists working in music today. Childs' canon of original compositions and arrangements has garnered him the 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship (2009), fourteen Grammy nominations, and four Grammy awards.
