All events for Premiere, ‘Antiphon and Six Psalms’
On Saturday, June 1, 7:30 p.m., please join Barbara Wesby for the premiere of her “Antiphon and Six Psalms” for adult mixed choir and children’s choir. This a cappella work received a 2013 DCA Art Fund grant from Staten Island Arts. Wesby and Voyces’ director Beth Johanning developed the work collaboratively to complement other works on the program (Bach, Schutz, Buxtehude and Porpora). Texts are drawn from Hildegard von Bingen (Laus Trinitati) and psalms that develop themes found in the antiphon. The style is a contemporary tribute to the late Renaissance. At Christ Church, 76 Franklin Ave., Staten Island. Admission: adults, $15; under 18, free.
