Autumn Rhapsody

  • The Theme: Women’s voices lift and carry works that capture the essence of autumn. Among them, expect works by Vivaldi, Estonian composer Ola Gjeilo, and the US premieres of works from Belgian composer Rudi Tas and Estonian composer Tonu Kõrvits.
  • Joining the Choir: Conductor Cynthia Powell (Artistic Director) takes up the baton to lead the choir accompanied by Taisiya Puskhar on piano and an all-female string quintet.
  • Program Highlights: The choir will perform a vocal arrangement of Largo from Dvořák’s New World Symphony. This arrangement comes from a collection entitled Song of Survival, which was created by Margaret Dryburgh and Nora Chambers, two women who were among hundreds imprisoned in a Sumatran internment camp during World War II. Also on the bill, a rare performance of Vivaldi’s Magnificat as originally written for female voices.

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 Clarke told Women's eNews. Still one of the freshest voices in the choir scene after a decade of performances, Melodia's ensemble takes pride in introducing audiences to compositions written specifically for the female voice by female composers. Along with Clarke, 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.
