American Classics: Bernstein, Barber & Copland
Fifth Avenue joins in the celebration of the American master, Leonard Bernstein, on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
The fall concert features Bernstein's Chichester Psalms for choir, organ, harp and percussion, alongside vibrant choral works by other mid-century American composers: Aaron Copland's In the Beginning and The Promise of Living, Randall Thompson's Alleluia and Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei (the composer's own choral arrangement of his Adagio for Strings).
The FAPC Chamber Choir is directed by Ryan Jackson, with Patrick Kreeger, organ; Kristi Shade, harp; and David Stevens, percussion.
Tickets (starting at $15) will be on sale at the church several Sundays before the performance. They are also available at fapc.org/tickets.
