The Washington-Lee High School Madrigal Singers have earned numerous superior ratings at festivals and contests across the region. They performed at the Virginia Music Educators Conference, The White House and for the Senate Democratic Caucus. The group was invited to sing in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall for the 103.5 Young Artists in the Community finale concert and appeared as the partner school choir of The Washington Chorus for three performances on their Christmas program. The group sings throughout the year for various community groups such as the Arlington Host Lion’s Club and Arlington Optimist Club. Singers from the Madrigals are consistently accepted into District Choir, Virginia Honors Choir and All-Virginia Chorus and the ACDA National Honors Choir. In years past the Madrigals performed The Star-Spangled Banner at sporting events for the Washington Nationals and DC United. The Washington-Lee Madrigals have a varied repertoire ranging from renaissance, classical, spiritual, multi-cultural and contemporary choral works.
