Live at Carnegie Hall...Nyack College NYC Chorale!

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday June 15, 2016


Members of the Nyack College New York City Chorale performed W.A. Mozart's Requiem, conducted by Grammy Award-winning Maestro and Director of Choral Activities at University of Michigan, Dr. Jerry Blackstone as part of a 245-member Masterworks Festival Chorus at Carnegie Hall on Monday, June 13.

The Nyack College Chorale was one of several ensembles that formed the Masterworks Festival Chorus, which was comprised of elite college and high school music students from our nation. Nyack students who participated were Charles Alvarenga, Gabriel Charles, Katherine Class, Paulino Diaz, Stephanie Fisher, Yessica Lopez, Rosana Mohabir, Lauren Navarro, Stephany Ortiz, Daniel Pineda, Tammy Rodriguez, Yazmin Rosado, Justin Tokke, Tessa Tokke, Nicole Vega, and Noël Wippler.

Dr. Elizabeth Swanson, conductor of Nyack’s NYC Chorale, held several weeks of rehearsals with Chorale members in preparation for the rehearsals with Dr. Blackstone. During the weekend prior to the performance, more than ten hours of intensive rehearsals took place with Dr. Blackstone and the plenary chorus at the New York Hilton Hotel in Midtown.

The sold out concert, produced by Manhattan Concert Productions (mcp.us), received an enthusiastic standing ovation.
