Sing The World Choir

A Concert of Hope

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade leads a cast of opera and musical theater performers, together with the Sing The World Choir, conducted by Dr. Jonathon Welch AM and Dr. Kathleen McGuire. Street Requiem aims to bring a sense of peace, remembrance, and hope to communities struggling to come to terms with street violence, war, and a loss of safety. The composers utilize gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque, indigenous, and contemporary genres and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living. This performance marks the work’s New York City premiere, and will help raise funds and awareness for the homeless.
