Half a century after Leonard Bernstein’s groundbreaking series of Young People’s Concerts, Schola Cantorum on Hudson asks the same fundamental question of a new century’s young people: “What is music?” Including the beloved Chichester Psalms and other Bernstein favorites, the concerts contain choral settings of several well-known instrumental selections, and one concluding selection that will invite audience participation. Following the popular success of the media element in Schola’s March concerts, audience members, will be able to access a parallel media production created for the event on their electronic devices.
Children under the age of 12 who bring an adult are admitted free of charge, and all are urged to bring an eDevice (tablet, smartphone, etc) for access to media illustrations (made available through log-in instructions at the concerts) that parallel the familiar stories being presented. The concerts focus on the evocative power of music in our lives.
Tickets for the concerts can be purchased in advance on the Schola web site for $20 or at the door for $25. All of Schola’s concerts are produced both in Manhattan (Church of St. Paul the Apostle, just south of Lincoln Center) and in Montclair, NJ (Church of the Immaculate Conception).
