Carmina, founded by artistic director Vera Kochanowsky and conducted by director Hubert Beckwith, has been performing early vocal music in the Washington DC area regularly since 1998. Carmina has been praised by both The Baltimore Sun and The Washington Post and was also featured in the Washingtonian magazine articles “Perfect Pitch” and “Good Arts Groups You Might Not Know About.”
The women’s vocal ensemble Illuminare, Carmina’s sister organization formed in 2006, is directed by Vera Kochanowsky. Illuminare has established a reputation in the Washington area for tastefully persuasive interpretations of early repertoire.
