Visions of Peace

With their combined voices, the chanteuses of the Melodia Women's Choir of NYC paint an ethereal portrait of the holidays in Visions of Peace. Under the wand of Cynthia Powell, and featuring pianist Taisiya Pushkar and percussionist Barbara Merjan, the troupe takes on a selection of classic and contemporary works that create both yuletide warmth and yuletide goosebumps.

  • Benjamin Britten—A Ceremony of Carols: In celebration of Benjamin Britten's 100th birthday, this performance of his famous cantata melds the choir's unified chanting with accompaniment from guest harpist Rita Costanzi.
  • Gustav Holst—Seven Part-Songs for Female Voices and Strings: The Transfiguration String Quintet lends its bows to this haunting, and appropriately named, work, punctuating sweeping choral arrangements with heart-melting solos.
  • Paul Csonka—Concierto di Navidad: Delicately performed in its native Spanish, this work welcomes the Christmas season with lush harmonies, catchy Cuban rhythms, and a giant greeting card signed by the whole choir.

Melodia Women's Choir of NYC

The resurgence of women's choirs is about "reinvigorating an age-old tradition where people from all walks of life come together to sing and to explore something they love," Melodia Women's Choir of NYC founder Jennifer Clark told Women's eNews. Still one of the freshest voices in the choir scene after a decade of performances, Melodia's 28-piece ensemble takes pride in introducing audiences to compositions written specifically for the female voice by female composers. Along with Clark, founding conductor and artistic director Cynthia Powell—who steered the nation's first gay and lesbian chorus, Stonewall Chorale, to Carnegie Hall—has led Melodia to great heights. The ensemble has appeared on TV and radio shows, and sang as guest artists at the Women's History Month Celebrations for the NYC Comptroller.
