The New York Choral Society will present a concert dedicated to the sea entitled “Where Even the Sea Sings.”
The program will include the East Coast premiere of the Frank Ticheli’s Symphony No. 3, “The Shore,” which conveys the power, beauty, and mystery of the sea. The piece has been described as a subtle but commanding score set to poetry in which the sea is a metaphor for life’s journey, from childhood to redemption. David St. John’s poetry provided a rich palette of musical moods evoked by the sea.
The program will also include Charles Stanford’s “Songs of the Fleet!” featuring rising star Baritone Jarrett Ott. It will conclude with Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, which was inspired by the composer’s visit to Hebrides islands off the west coast of Scotland.
