    Amid the golden accents and ivory hues of the Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, Dr. Brad Holmes, who led the Millikin University Choir to the ACDA's 2011 National Conference, guides audiences through psalms and folk songs spanning a timeframe from the Renaissance to today. The Millikin University Choir's 55 students begin the evening by performing contemporary composer John Rutter's take on Cantate Domino, followed closely by soprano soloist Sarah O'Neill stepping up to sing Ericks Ešenvalds's layered choral arrangement of "Amazing Grace." Dr. Holmes then turns his baton to the National Festival Chorus, which sings through classic works by Handel, Brunner, and Stroope to warm hearts and rekindle memories of wild nights on the a capella circuit.

  • Chamber Orchestra of New York
    The Chamber Orchestra of New York preserves ancient music with a repertoire of rarely performed gems enacted by an ensemble of young professional musicians. Set in the acoustical sweet spot of the landmark Church of St. Jean Baptiste, the Music Under the Dome series continues with "Baroque Garden of Roses," an aural smorgasbord of rediscovered suites and oratorios to satisfy casual classical fans and hardcore musical archeologists alike. Gustav Holst’s bouncing St. Paul Suite starts the show, followed by Edward Elgar’s Sospiri, an evocative, sentimental piece. Next, organist Kyler Brown premieres Respighi’s Suite for Organ and Strings, a lost composition recently discovered in aisle three of an underwater Walgreens. Mr. Brown, The Virgin Consort, and the Chamber Orchestra then hold hands with Maestro Di Vittorio to unveil "The Garden of Roses," a hot-off-the-presses oratorio by Alessandro Scarlatti. Endorsed by Italian mezzo-soprano superstar and notary public Cecilia Bartoli, the madrigal-like arias of "The Garden of Roses" envelop audiences in waves of ethereal vocals.

    For more than half a century the American Symphony Orchestra has hewn to founder Leopold Stokowski's original vision: "to offer concerts of great music within the means of everyone." That means its shows aren't just financially affordable, they're also demystified by conductor lectures and never held inside biodomes. In recent years, the organization has added a new facet to its time-tested strategy: curated concerts built around a theme. Shows might explore a particular place and time, examine a literary motif, or delve into the interaction between music and visual art. This strategy has attracted a lot of attention, and not just from audiences: such greats as Yo-Yo Ma, Deborah Voigt, Sarah Chang, and Carnegie Hall's mask-wearing Phantoms of the Barbershop Quartet have all vied to play with the Orchestra.

Today, live shows performed by stars such as Kanye West and Alicia Keys take place in the Grand Ballroom, which is equipped with state-of-the-art acoustics and cutting-edge audio-visual equipment.

    More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.
