By Nicolas Quiroga

The New York Choral Society has announced its return to live performances with “Love In Action,” a choral music concert that brings together works by eight contemporary American composers

The concert, which will be performed on April 2, will feature 120 voices performing at the Upper West Side at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. The evening will also feature the voices of frontline and essential workers, along with the Catalyst Quartet; Grammy Award-winning soprano Chantal Freeman; mezzo-soprano Miastasha González-Colón; tenor Bernard Holcomb, and baritone Marcus De-Loach.

For the last two years the joy was far away, but in this period of sacrifice and loss we continue to be hopeful and loving, we saw so much kindness and learned more about community, patience and love,” said music director David Hayes in an official press statement.

“The courage and commitment of our society and the city during the last two years will be honored, a time that brought incredible challenges and that made us show love in action, by health workers, who worked every day, restaurant employees, EMTS and firefighters, police officers, doctors and those who kept the shelves in supermarkets full, are people to whom our community expresses gratitude. All these people will be welcomed and will have direct participation during the evening. All essential workers and their families are invited, and there will be notable guests, such as Chef Grace Ramirez, for her generosity during the pandemic.”
