NOVUS NY, Trinity Choir and Washington Chorus Perform Ives and Ginastera at Carnegie Hall

Preview: The "Big" Concert with Ives and Ginastera at Carnegie Hall

Trinity Choir Big Concert

You might want to bring earplugs for this one. 

On Saturday night, Trinity Choir director Julian Wachner brings some 300 musicians uptown with him to Carnegie Hall for what is being billed as "The Big Concert", pairing Alberto Ginastera's modern-day Passion setting Turbae ad passionem gregorianam with Charles Ives' monumental Symphony No. 4. Neither of these massive works get performed very much around these parts, mostly due to the massive forces required: two full choirs, two children's choirs, full orchestra and soloists. Fortunately, Wachner has all of these at his disposal: in addition to the Trinity Choir, he leads The Trinity Youth ChorusThe Washington ChorusThe Washington National Cathedral Choir of Boys and Girls, and NOVUS NY
