This 2021–22 season is a momentous occasion that marks our return to live performance after a long hiatus due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. We have missed each other, we have missed you, and we have missed the transformative power of live sacred music.
This page contains all the information you need to plan for this special season’s offerings, including choral concerts and organ recitals. Our programs feature Fifth Avenue’s phenomenal Chamber Choir, as well as our very own Juilliard-trained organists.
As always, we promise sacred music experiences to open the mind, stir the heart, and nourish the soul. And why not share the joy? Bring a friend or your family along with you. Every time you attend a concert and spread the word about how much the experience meant to you, you help to maintain a valued space in our society for the life-changing power of live music—something I suspect we all appreciate now more than ever. See you there!

A dramatic and powerful prayer for deliverance from death and hell, Verdi’s Requiem is a thrilling product of years of experience as the world’s greatest opera composer. The Shelest Piano Duo join us for the world premiere of Ryan Jackson’s thrilling new arrangement of this masterpiece for piano four-hands. Hear Verdi’s superb vocal writing as never before in an electrifying performance that explores all the drama and dynamics of the score with the incisive diction and vibrant sound that has come to define the Fifth Avenue Chamber Choir. These performances are dedicated to the memory of Antoine Hodge, beloved choir member who passed away from complications due to COVID-19 in February 2021. Sung in Latin with English subtitles.
