Chorister Compline Lenten Concert

Historic St. Paul’s Chapel

The Youth Chorus of Trinity Wall Street brings together talented youth ages 4 to 18 from the five boroughs of New York City. Choristers receive both group and individual training in vocal technique, music theory, sight-reading, and performance skills from a group of dedicated professionals led by Julian Wachner, Director of Music and the Arts, and Melissa Attebury, Associate Director of Music and the Arts.  The choristers provide musical leadership at Sunday services alongside The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and offer concerts throughout the season.  The Chorus was recently featured in the film "Love is Strange" and performed as part of Fashion Week 2014. They were also heard in the 2008 film Doubt, starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffmann. The Chorus has performed with Bobby McFerrin, Josh Groban and The Rolling Stones, and has been heard on Public Radio International, CBS's The Early Show, the Tribeca Family Festival, and at the Philadelphia Italian Market Festival.

The ancient evening service for the end of the day, Compline, is the focus of this Lenten concert, featuring Tilge, Höchster, meine Sünden (BWV 1083), J.S. Bach's arrangement of Pergolesi's 1736 Stabat Mater for soprano and alto voices.  Melissa Attebury conducts.
