The choir from Winston-Salem State University will be among the Distinguished Concert Singers International for the performance of “The Cry of Jeremiah” at its New York City premier at the Lincoln Center on Saturday, May 10, at 7 p.m.
Composed by Dr. Rosephanye Dunn Powell who is one of American’s premier women composers of choral music, “The Cry of Jeremiah” is in four movements and follows the prophet’s feelings of abandonment and redemption by God. Powell combines the ancient text with music that draws from both the African American heritage and classical music traditions.
The program is part of the Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) spring series. DCINY strives to make music accessible and affordable to all patrons while presenting music from many genres including classical, jazz, and world music. Their concerts take place at such world renowned venues as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
Tickets are $40 and available on line at www.lincolncenter.org or by phone at CenterCharge, 212-721-6500.
