Join us for Multidimensional Magnificence on 11/5!
The Dessoff Choirs opens its 93rd season with Multidimensional Magnificence: a one-night only performance at The Riverside Church. Dedicated to introducing a new generation of listeners to rich choral traditions in urban spaces, The Dessoff Choirs will create a unique aural experience influenced by poly-choral traditions of San Marco, Venice, Italy, as well as the stereophonic tendencies of Charles Ives.
The program includes the double choir Bach motet Singet dem Herrn, the evocative electro-acoustic pieces filament and Mille Regretz, and Gregg Smith’s If music be the food of love. The concert’s first half culminates in Victorian splendor with Parry’s Blest pair of sirens, accompanied by Michael Hey. As part of its season-long celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s centenary, the choir honors Bernstein’s rich legacy by performing an arrangement by Robert Page of “Make our garden grow” from Candide. Steven Ryan weaves the program together playing excerpts from Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet.”
Thank you for being a wonderful audience and making last season so successful. We look forward to seeing you this season, starting with our first concert in November 2017.
