Summer Sings, our series of open choral readings will run July 25 to August 29, 2012.
Brahms: A German Requiem
Brahm's Requiem demands excessive quantities of passion and drama, angst and sweetness, and power and intimacy. In a letter to Brahms, Clara Schumann wrote, “It is a truly tremendous piece of art which moves the entire being in a way little else does.”
David Hayes is music director of both the critically acclaimed professional vocal ensemble The Philadelphia Singers and of The Philadelphia Singers Chorale. Both have been named resident choruses of the Philadelphia Orchestra. He will be the New York Choral Society’s guest conductor for their spring concert on April 25, 2013, in Carnegie Hall.
