The Bard Sings
Shakespeare through the ages
Our annual spring concert presents Shakespeare’s timeless poetry in choral settings old and new, including the premiere of our latest commission, a setting of Sonnet 65 by New York composer Julie Dolphin. The concert also features music by Thomas Morley, Amy Beach, Ralph Vaughan Williams, George Shearing, and Matthew Harris, as well as dramatic readings from Shakespeare’s plays performed by young artists from LREI. Our venue is the Church of St. Joseph in Greenwich Village, 371 Ave of the Americas, two blocks south of 8th Street. The Church is wheelchair-accessible.
