Choral Classics

Discover choral masterworks that shine a light on vocal artistry on an international scale. Robert Spano captures the American spirit in a program that includes works by Bernstein and Copland; Gustavo Dudamel conducts a program of 20th- and 21st-century works by Latin American composers; and Osvaldo Golijov’s spirited La Pasión según San Marcos is interpreted by members of Schola Cantorum de Venezuela and New York City high school choristers.
