We are beyond excited to be featuring this special concert for our Meetup members! Join us for the World Premiere of renowned composer Ola Gjeilo's Dreamweaver, performed by the professional Manhattan Chorale and New York City Chamber Orchestra on Sunday, May 18 at 8:30pm at Carnegie Hall. Scored for choir, string orchestra and piano, the work is a new setting of a well-known Norwegian medieval ballad, Draumkvedet; an epic text that has more than a few things in common with Dante's infinitely longer Divine Comedy. Draumkvedet has for this piece been adapted into a playful English adaption penned by Gjeilo's regular collaborator, poet Charles Anthony Silvestri.
The performance will also feature Gjeilo's exquisite Sunrise Mass - this lush, cinematic-sounding piece has gained immense popularity around the world and will be performed by the professional Manhattan Chorale, Symphonic Chorus and New York City Chamber Orchestra, all under the baton of esteemed conductor Craig Arnold.
