The New York City Master Chorale is set to showcase its first concert of the 2019-20 season on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 at St. Peter’s Chelsea.
The concert, entitled “A Procession Winding Around Me,” will feature works for chorale and guitar based on poetry by Walt Whitman and Federico Garcia Lorca. These works include “Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s “Romancero Gitano” and Jeffrey Van’s “A Procession Winding Around Me.”
The concert will also showcase music by composer Mateo Flecha. Giacomo Baldelli will play the guitar on the concert.
“We hope our audience will be as moved and delighted by hearing these extraordinary works of music and poetry as we have been by singing them,” said Dusty Francis, Artistic Director of the New York City Master Chorale. “It is exciting for us to collaborate with Giacomo Baldelli to present these vibrant pieces, which together demonstrate humanity’s potential for both light and darkness.”
