The mission of Second Wind is to rediscover the joy of music making and performance, and the commitment to learning and developing the art of choral music in our community.
Second Wind is a community chorus that has enjoyed making music together for over a decade in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington D.C. Many of our members have enjoyed singing in the past and decided to pursue their love of music again, henceforth our name, Second Wind.
From madrigals and the music of Palestrina to selections by Mozart and Mendelssohn to more contemporary compositions by John Rutter and Eric Whitacre, we explore a diverse repertoire that keeps our curiosity intrigued and musical horizons constantly expanding. We offer two to three concerts each year at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, fondly referred to as CHAW, which is a staple in the arts community of Capitol Hill.
Our members have varied backgrounds in music and we welcome anyone who possesses a passion for singing and wishes to join our chorus.
