A number of talented young choral ensembles come together to paint an aural rainbow with their voices. The program is largely contemporary; the Alabama A&M University choir begins the evening with selections including Eric Whitacre's haunting Water Night, followed by Paul Carey's decidedly playful three-parter Play With Your Food. Next, four Indiana-based choirs share Autumn by Joshua Shank, a piece that uses the season's falling leaves and omnipresent pumpkin spice syrups as a metaphor for life's struggles. Finally, the ensembles of the Davidson Find Arts School and the Westminster Chorale perform a piece by Davidson director Timothy Michael Powell that re-imagines the legend of Saint George and the dragon.
Alice Tully Hall at 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.
