Classical music aficionados: Anne Frank House has been selected by the Georgetown Chorale as its beneficiary for its 2019-20 season. Funds raised from the Chorale's spring concert will be donated to Anne Frank House. The concert, taking place on Saturday, May 2, at 3 pm, at the Church of the Epiphany (1317 G St., NW), is an all-Beethoven program, celebrating the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth. The program will feature the Mass in C and the Choral Fantasy. Andrew Jonathan Welch will be featured on the piano for the magnificent solo sections of the “Choral Fantasy.”

Now in its 30th year, the Chorale performs two concerts each season, a Holiday Concert in December and a Spring Benefit Concert to assist Washington, DC nonprofit organizations. The Chorale (originally known as the Georgetown Community Chorale) was founded in 1989. First organized as an extension course through the School of Continuing Studies at Georgetown University, the Chorale is now an independent nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to provide community service through music.
