The Collegiate Chorale presents Contemporary Voices on May 21, 2012 at 7pm at St. Bartholomew’s Church, 325 Park Avenue, NYC. The concert features five musical gems by 20th and 21st Century masters of choral composition. Single tickets start at $20 and are available online at collegiatechorale.org or by phone at The Chorale office at (646) 435-9465.
The performance will open with a work that The Chorale premiered in 1947, Aaron Copland's In The Beginning, for mezzo-soprano soloist and a cappella choir. The soloist will be Virginia Warnken. Following Avner Dorman's evocative Psalm 67 (NY premiere), Toru Takemitsu's pensive All That the Man Left Behind When He Died, and Krzysztof Penderecki's ethereal Song of the Cherubim, the Chorale will conclude their 70th Anniversary season with Francis Poulenc's beloved Gloria, with esteemed organist Christopher Creaghan and soprano soloist Marie Mascari. The sanctuary of St. Bartholomew's Church will provide a beautiful setting for this music, conducted by The Chorale's Music Director, James Bagwell.
