This concert will feature the world premiere performance of the orchestral version of A PSALM BEYOND THE SILENCES, a Jewish Holocaust remembrance piece with words by Dr. Joseph H. Albeck, here scored for SATB Chorus and orchestra rather than of the usual piano accompaniment. The professional orchestra and chorus members of the New Score Chamber Orchestra will be conducted by their founding music director, Jamie Wehr. for more information, visit the NSCO’s official Facebook page. <https://www.facebook.com/orlandonsco>
From the Altricham Choral Society, UK.
“The concert was performed to a very packed audience in the beautiful setting of St. Peter’s Church. The choir performed the first three unaccompanied pieces standing around the church, thus encircling the audience with the music, which created a very intimate bond. I have taken the liberty of attaching a photograph of the church in order that you might get a better idea of how the choir looked underneath the arches and around the pillars. The wooden beams of the roof and tiled floor of course provide a fabulous acoustic.
Psalm 84 was a pleasure to sing and was extremely well received by the 300 or so audience…
With best regards
Just completed tonight: a bitter-sweet musical composition! THE CLOCK (Zegar) for two-part children’s chorus and piano, a setting of Words by Abraham (“Abramek”) Koplowicz (b. 1930, Lodz, Poland, d. 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau) as translated by Sarah Lawson and Małgorzata Koraszewska. I am already shopping it to a first-rate choral director. :-)
