CANTERBURY GOES GLOBAL IN ITS SIXTIETH YEAR!

CONDUCTOR TO BE HONORED WITH A PLAQUE

 

For the first time in its 60-year history, Canterbury Choral Society, under the baton of founder Charles Dodsley Walker, will collaborate with a prominent international choral group.

On November 3, 2012 at 8pm Coro ProMúsica México will join Canterbury to perform Gustav Mahler’s magnificent Eighth Symphony at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Fifty five members of the choral group from Mexico City will join more than six hundred singers celebrating Canterbury’s Diamond Jubilee Concert.

“We are very pleased and proud to join with Canterbury in the performance of this important romantic work composed in 1906” said Dr. Samuel Pascoe, conductor of the group and famed Mexican composer.

After the Jubilee concert, Bishop Michael Marshall, Interim Rector at the Church of the Heavenly Rest, will present Canterbury’s conductor, Charles Dodlsey Walker, with a plaque, honoring his contribution to the musical life of the church and the city.

Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, also known as “The Symphony of a Thousand”, requires elaborate staging, including a large orchestra, eight soloists, a double chorus and a large children’s chorus.

 A 400-voice children’s choir will participate in the performance.  Young choristers from five New York schools and youth choral groups from five churches will sing. The schools include Brearley, Pingry, Spence, St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s and Trinity;  the churches are the Church of the Heavenly Rest, St. Michael’s Church, and Grace Church in New York City; St. Paul’s Church, Fairfield, and St Luke’s Parish, Darien, in Connecticut.

 Also singing will be members of the Long Island Choral Society, and faculty, staff and uniformed cadets from the US Military Academy at West Point. Meredith Baker is the conductor of both groups.

 Soloists participating are: Elizabeth Keusch, Michelle Trainor and Sharia Nafziger, Sopranos, Barbara Rearick and Charlotte Daw Paulson, Mezzo-Sopranos; John Daniecki, Tenor, Thomas Woodman, Baritone and Stephen Bryant, Bass-Baritone.

 Mahler’s Eighth Symphony is in two movements. The first is a setting of the 9th Century Latin hymn Veni Creator Spiritus. The second movement is sung in German and is taken from Goethe’s Faust Part Two, published posthumously in 1832.

 The Eighth Symphony was created by Austrian composer Gustav Mahler in the summer of 1906.  Inspiration came to him quite suddenly in his studio. “It was a vision that struck me like lightening—the whole immediately before my eyes. I had only to write it down, as though it has just been dictated to me,” he wrote. Mahler not only composed new music for the medieval hymn, but conceived of the conceptual link to Goethe’s Faust, joining the texts together in an innovative symphony that borrowed elements from sacred oratorio and dramatic opera.

 Tickets for Canterbury Choral Society’s performance of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony will go on sale at the Carnegie Hall Box Office at 154 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019  starting September 24th   2012. Prices range from $35 to $80.

 In addition, special benefit tickets for preferred seating and the Gala Benefit Supper to be held immediately after the concert in the Rohatyn Room can be ordered directly from Canterbury by email at canterburychoral@gmail.com
