************
"Our next New York City appearance will be on May 28, 2016 as the central chorus performing the world premiere of Ivo Antognini’s A Prayer for Mother Earth, at Carnegie Hall. This will be followed by two local concerts in early June, 2016 featuring the same piece, a glorious modern “oratorio for life” with lyrics in English that are drawn from Native American prayers, Saint Francis of Assissi and Archpriest Grigori Petrov, among others. In our local concerts we will also sing a selection of American Spirituals arranged by John Rutter, plus a few other surprises."
