One Land, Many Voices!
Saturday, May 6, 2017, at 8:00 p.m.
The American musical canon is filled with diverse voices. Generations of people have reached our shores, bringing their music with them. Join us as we celebrate the wealth of voices that have contributed to the American experience — composers such as Aaron Copland, William Billings, Eric Whitacre, and Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell; traditional songs from Jewish and African-American roots; and American Standards by some of our most famous immigrants.
Venue: Church of the Holy Apostles, 296 9th Avenue (SE corner 28th Street) in New York City.
Tickets: info to come.
