A Child of Our Time

This performance of Sir Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time will feature select high school choirs chosen by competition with peer groups nationwide. The featured work uses the Spiritual in much the same way that J. S. Bach employed the chorale in his great choral compositions.
The Carnegie Hall National High School Choral Festival is made possible, in part, by an endowment fund for choral music established by S. Donald Sussman in memory of Judith Arron and Robert Shaw.
Major funding for Honor! A Celebration of the African American Cultural Legacy has been provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, The Alice Tully Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation's New York City Cultural Innovation Fund, Howard University, and the A. L. and Jennie L. Luria Foundation.

The opening performance of Honor! is sponsored by Bank of America.

Honor! is made possible, in part, by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
