Carnegie Hall Presents

Choral Classics

When orchestras and choruses come together on stage at Carnegie Hall, something truly special happens. The sheer power of the combined forces is overwhelming, and with the monumental Missa Solemnis by Beethoven and Bach’s St. John Passion—not to mention Honneger’s spectacular Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher—this season’s Choral Classics will be sublime.
