A New York Romance celebrates the great composers associated with the city with a program that is as diverse as the passengers on the Queens bound number 7 train.
In a series of brief, musical snapshots, Wagner College Choir, Chamber Singers and Stretto Vocal Jazz Ensemble take the listener on a journey through 175 years of music by composers who lived in, immigrated to, visited for a good while or just kept returning to New York. The program moves quickly through myriad phases of musical creation, and celebrates the native founders of the American Sound, immigrants and visitors who enriched and inspired us, iconoclasts and pioneers who challenged us and pushed the boundaries, and composers from minority groups who helped us find our nation’s collective musical soul.
The program includes includes music by Copland, Bernstein, Gershwin, Foster, Ellington, Ives and Weill. The concert is open to the public. A freewill offering will be taken.
