Sophia Institute Conference Features Nyack NYC Faculty
Nyack Manhattan campus School of Music professors, Drs. Dana and Sue Talley along with Prof. Jhasoa Agosto, will be featured performers in a musical tribute to Nicholas of Myra at Union Theological Seminary on December 5 at 5:30 p.m., 3041 Broadway at 121st Street in Manhattan at the Sophia Institute’s Sixth Annual Conference on Healing, Reconciliation and Forgiveness in Eastern Orthodox Perspectives.
The musical selection was commissioned by the Rev. James McGuckin, a recent guest speaker at Nyack's Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins conference. Dr. Sue Talley shares that “Dr. McGuckin, is not only the Nielsen Professor of Early Church History at Union Theological Seminary, but a poet.” His translation of the selection is set to music composed by Mrs. Talley an accomplished pianist and dean of the Nyack NYC School of Music.
She adds, “Some people think of Nicholas of Myra as "Santa Claus" of fiction and fairy tale, but his dedication to the truth of Christ as eternally begotten of the Father was heroically courageous, as was his dedication to the poor women he ransomed from a life of slavery. He spoke out in defense of the truth at the peril of his life. He is ‘the real St. Nicholas’ who is worthy of remembrance.”
The performance will be recorded by the Sophia Institute and subsequently broadcast throughout Europe.
