The 150-voice Cathedral Choral Society, under the direction of J. Reilly Lewis, performed with Czech soprano soloist Alexandra Berti at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on October 28, 2011, to close the festival and mark Czech National Day. Additional soloists included Magdalena Wor (mezzo soprano), Corey Bix (tenor), and Aleksey Bogdanov (bass). At the event, the choir performed Dvořák’s Te Deum and Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass.
Executive director of the Cathedral Choral Society, Alison Combes, said, "The Mutual Inspirations Festival brought to Washington, DC, a unique opportunity to delve in-depth into a particular composer and learn from a culture different from our own and yet so similar in many ways. We were also obviously delighted to have the opportunity to present some rarely-performed works in the beautiful setting of the Basilica!"
