Join the New York City Master Chorale as they present a cappella choral works by American composers before we leave on our tour to Florence, Italy!
This delightful concert will feature favorite classics by Alice Parker, Stephen Paulus, Moses Hogan, Randall Thompson and Eric Whitacre, new works by Julia Barry, and Joseph Turrin and more!
"At a time when we feel our values are being challenged, we have music to unite us." says Artistic Director Thea Kano. "The American composers represented in this concert chose text that depicts beauty, peace and community--values respected around the world."
Adds Associate Conductor Dusty Francis, "It's an exciting survey of American musical history and styles, spanning early shape-note hymnody to spirituals, folk, gospel, and contemporary classical. The program really runs the gamut."
