On Saturday, March 23 at 8:00 p.m., the New York City Master Chorale will present “Let There Be Light”, the second concert of their 2017–2018 Season of Light. Principal Conductor Dusty Francis leads the Chorale in Johannes Brahms’ motet “Warum ist das Licht Gegeben”; Herbert Howells’ Requiem; and Aaron Copland’s In the Beginning, for which they will be joined by mezzo-soprano Helen Karloski as the soloist.
"This is a program I have dreamt of presenting for years," says Mr. Francis. "These three works represent some of the most beautiful and most challenging choral works in the repertoire. The program opens with a question that, by the end, it seeks to answer itself: "Why has light been given to the weary of soul and life to the troubled hearts?" To answer this question, the Chorale leads the audience through the creation of the universe itself, culminating in one of the most transcendent moments in all of music history---Copland's setting of the creation of man."
