The world premiere of composer Vijay Singh's "MASS with Orchestra" will take place May 30, 2011 at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center, New York City, NY. Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) is promoting the concert and the premiere will be conducted by DCINY Executive Director and Principle Conductor Jonathan Griffith. The Faure Requiem will also be featured during the concert. The five movement work was originally conceived to be performed in a church setting. After seeing the score, Griffith commissioned Singh to expand it to include orchestra. DCINY has a strong tradition of promoting new choral works, most notably the works of Karl Jenkins and Eric Whitacre.
