The Cry of Jeremiah

The four-movement choral piece The Cry of Jeremiah is an ancient story of faith challenged, from award-winning composer Rosephanye Powell. Based on the biblical book of Jeremiah, the piece sees the titular prophet calling upon the heavens for strength. In "Is His Word Not Like A Fire," Jeremiah shares how he is divinely compelled to speak prophecy, but in the second movement "O Lord You Have Deceived Me," he falls to despair when the people will not heed his word. Darker still grows his mood in the more dissonant third movement, "Cursed Be the Day." But an upbeat, almost jazzy tone colors the final section, as Jeremiah accepts his fate and proclaims "Hallelujah!" The Cry of Jeremiah is performed alongside Robert Harris's Gloria, and both pieces are making their New York City premieres courtesy of accomplished vocal cords from across the United States and the Bahamas.

Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center

In 1958, Arthur Houghton, one of the founders of Lincoln Center, spent lunch trying to convince his cousin Alice Tully to finance a space for small ensembles on the Lincoln Center grounds. After the meal, unsure of whether the hall would meet her standards, the meticulous Tully gave a conditional reply: yes, as long as her name was not associated with the building. When a renowned acoustics expert was brought in to design the hall, Tully relented in her desire for anonymity but insisted on taking an active role in the design and construction of the building that would bear her name. Visiting the site several times a week throughout construction, she masterminded many of her namesake’s best-known characteristics, including its elegant basswood interior, 4,192-pipe organ, and extra-wide rows.
