Downtown Voices: Rachmaninoff Vespers
Praised by The New York Times for their “incisive, agile strength,” Downtown Voices is a semiprofessional choir made up of volunteer singers from the New York metro area and members of the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street. Founded by Director of Music and the Arts, Julian Wachner, and directed by Stephen Sands, Downtown Voices’ first two seasons included performances featuring the works of Beethoven, Alberto Ginastera, Benjamin Britten, James MacMillan, Philip Glass, and a large-scale commission for the 250th anniversary of St. Paul’s Chapel, Spire and Shadow by Zachary Wadsworth.
Downtown Voices' third season promises similarly ambitious programming. This concert features Sergei Rachmaninoff's captivating and haunting cornerstone of twentieth-century choral literature, The All Night Vigil.
