Carnegie Hall Choral Institute presents Transient Glory

92nd Street Y
In partnership with the Young People's Chorus of New York City, Carnegie Hall presents three evenings of contemporary works for young voices. These events follow three days of workshops for visiting conductor fellows and will include conversations with the featured composers as well as performances by the JACK Quartet.

A celebration of new beginnings, and childhoods past: Joan Tower's first piece for chorus, Del Tredici's paean to youth, and Bright Sheng's evocative music based on a folksong from his native China.
