IN Series’ L’Enfance du Christ


In collaboration with Foundry United Methodist Church, Berlioz’s grand oratorio is uniquely staged as a community exploration of human migration and the power of hospitality to those fleeing persecution.

Performed in the stunning Foundry sanctuary, with the combined forces of its choir under the direction of Stanley Thurston, soloists, instrumentalists, and the historic organ, this holiday-time performance seeks out the nexus of art, faith, and social justice to ask the most essential human question of how we offer kindness to the “other.” On stage at the Foundry United Methodist Church, 1500 16th St. NW, Dec. 7 and 14, 8 p.m.; and Dec. 8, 3 p.m.
