The Program

The Distinguished Concerts Orchestra, the Distinguished Concerts Singers International, and a quartet of soloists join composer Bradley Ellingboe as he leads the orchestral world premiere of his Star Song, and conductor Aimee Beckmann-Collier as she makes her DCINY debut.

  • Ellingboe—Star Song: When Carl Sagan said, "We are made of star-stuff," it struck a unique chord with composer Bradley Ellingboe. “Everything in the universe vibrates," he told Carolyn Gonzales of the University of New Mexico. "Planets spin and hum. Sound exists in light, but our ears aren’t tuned to it.” So he gave the music of space a voice people could hear. To do this—while recovering from a stroke—he immersed himself in poetry and paired the verses he found with a piano, choir, and chamber orchestra.
  • Mozart—Coronation Mass: Written by a 23-year-old Amadeus for services in the Salzburg Cathedral—and later performed at St. Peter's Basilica—this "short mass" juxtaposes soaring choral melodies, strings, and bright brass with vocal solos and duets. The power and majesty it contains made it a favorite piece to play during coronation ceremonies and montages of kings doing dignified things.

Distinguished Concerts International New York

An artist, Distinguished Concerts International New York's website says, is "an individual who continually seeks to improve, to grow, and aspires to perform at a higher level." The people behind this definition are DCINY co-founders Iris Derke and Jonathan Griffith, and it's a definition their musicians fulfill. To do so, they collaborate and express themselves while both performing famed Mozart compositions and leading educational events.
