Black Angels (21st Century Consort)

  • Smithsonian American Art Museum 8th and F Streets NW Washington, DC 20004 (map)

A harrowing and formative period for many in America, 1965-1975 is the subject of SAAM’s exhibition “America and the Vietnam War.” The Consort mounts a musical corollary with works that speaks to the tenor of the times and the themes that still radiate from them.
