The Capital Hearings–D.C.’s leaders in cross-genre a cappella–will join forces with the endearing folk duo The Sweater Set for a dynamic and compelling evening of original and familiar music.
Through a unique collaborative effort, supported by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, the groups will co-premiere two original songs written by The Sweater Set’s Sara Curtin and Maureen Andary, each performed in acoustic and a cappella styles.
The free, hour-long concert will also feature a wide variety of folk, jazz, classical, and pop music from both groups. The performance will be preceded by a 6 p.m. reception.
