The second concert features new compositions, arranged and performed by
students, based on the theme of reinventing a masterpiece. Hundreds of New York City high school singers took center stage in Carnegie Hall's Too Hot to Handel Creative Learning Project. The project, including a year of workshops, rehearsals, and
performances, culminated in two concerts at Carnegie Hall. The first
concert featured the students, conductor Marin Alsop, and the Baltimore
Symphony Orchestra performing Too Hot to Handel, an exuberant re-invention of Handel's Messiah.
