Good afternoon all,
We're excited to announce our first concert in our Boston Classical Music Concertgoers Meetup group! On Sunday, October 20th at 7:00pm we will hear the professional Manhattan Chorale at St. Paul Church in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. Manhattan Chorale celebrates American Poetry, led by Artistic Director Craig Arnold with special guest and frequent collaborator, Composer-in-Residence Ola Gjeilo.
The New York-based Manhattan Chorale presents a historical spectrum of choral masterworks large and small, in addition to contemporary literature and the premiere of new works. The chorale currently features the work of internationally renowned Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo who also serves as composer-in-residence. Manhattan Chorale's debut sold out performance at Lincoln Center For Unto Us A Child Is Born in December 2012, featured two movements of Ola Gjeilo's Sunrise Mass and his Tota Pulchra Es.
In addition to this Boston performance, Manhattan Chorale will appear in venues throughout the United States, with performances scheduled at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Orchestra Hall in Chicago and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.
Manhattan Chorale and Chamber Orchestra are conducted by Artistic Director, Craig Arnold. Dr. Arnold has had an extensive career as conductor of choirs and orchestras of all ages; educator of graduate, undergraduate, high school, and middle school students; guest lecturer for teacher and conductor training; and frequent guest conductor and conductor having appeared in Japan, England, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, Wales, Hong Kong, China and Spain, as well as recently completing a tenure as Director of Choral Activities and Conductor of the internationally renowned Nordic Choir at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.
Make sure to reserve your spot early for this concert before seats sell out. Once you have booked your tickets, they will be available at the venue from 6pm on the day of the performance.
This is going to be a fantastic concert! Looking forward to our first Meetup event and meeting everyone!
