Annual Christmas Gala

at the

Embassy of Slovakia



buffet, wine, champagne, ample free parking in embassy compound


EIGHTEEN STREET SINGERS will be performing carols and holiday songs, starting at 6:30PM.

Founded in 2004, the 18th Street Singers is a fifty-voice ensemble committed to musical excellence and bringing a fresh and more accessible take on choral music to a wider audience in Washington, DC. At the same time, we're dedicated to being a supportive community for our members, who come from all walks of life and are cherished friends and colleagues.We seek to program concerts that move our members and our audiences by unabashedly mixing the best of genres. We sing music that you think of as "traditional" choral music, we find lesser-known gems, and we prioritize amplifying the voices, composers, and themes that are often missing at classical music concerts.

Our annual Christmas Gala returns to the Embassy of Slovakia for an encore performance by the New York Virtuosi.

Always one of our most popular events, expect to enjoy festive music, fun, and celebration as we close out another spectacular year.

The New York Virtuosi is a group of the finest music performers offering various musical styles for many occasion.  Founded in 2012 by violist Peter Kiral.  This superb ensemble plays classical, popular and holiday music and is a string quartet par excellence.

Our annual Christmas program at the Slovak Embassy is followed by a superb buffet with wine and champagne and is a highlight of the season. Ample free parking in the embassy compound.
