Empire City Men's Chorus: A More Perfect Union - May 16, 17 and 18
Date: April 17, 2014
Location: New York, USA
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
Building on our artistic vision of fostering social and community dialogue, the Empire City Men's Chorus is excited to present its May 2014 concert series A MORE PERFECT UNION, celebrating the quest for freedom, peace and equality. Join us for a night of timeless political and social writings, speeches, and addresses woven into compelling music arrangements for men's ensemble. Many of the featured texts come from historical luminaries like Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Susan B. Anthony. You will also hear Melissa Dunphy's award winning What do you think I fought for at Omaha Beach, a setting of Philip Spooner's compelling testimony on marriage equality given in 2009 and the world premiere of John Conahan's One Song text by 13th-century Persian mystic and philosopher Rumi. These works represent centuries of struggle for social equality, a struggle that continues to mold and shape a unique and great American nation. But with all that greatness, there is still work to be done...
