Beethoven called George Frideric Handel "the greatest composer that ever lived." Mozart said, "He strikes like a thunder bolt." And for many, it just wouldn't be a choral concert without some Handel. Luckily at this concert at the iconic Carnegie Hall, the National Festival Chorus will perform a work from the Messiah composer, as well as a wide-ranging program that explores the full spectrum of choral music. Also on the program is a piece by contemporary composer René Clausen, whose most recent release won three Grammy Awards. Also performing are the Texas A&M University Century Singers and the Columbia University Wind Ensemble, who will present works ranging from Victorian composer Williams Pitts to Johan de Meij, who is best known for his "The Lord of the Rings" symphony and will be a special guest conductor.
