Thrill to the stirring sounds of Vaughan Williams' cantata Dona Nobis Pacem at majestic Carnegie Hall. Written between the World Wars in 1936, the British composer's melodic plea for peace not only draws from the traditional mass, but also from a trio of powerful poems by Walt Whitman. Accompanied by the New York City Chamber Orchestra, the Masterworks Festival Chorus sings this stunning work, with solos by soprano Inna Dukach and baritone Markus Beam, under the baton of guest conductor James Rodde. The National Festival Chorus also takes the stage for favorites like How Can I Keep from Singing, Dickau's If Music Be the Food of Love and the spiritual My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord.

Berry Gordy salutes you, Michael Jackson moon walks for you, Diana Ross spreads her wings for you, Marvin Gaye smiles and winks at you and all that continously danced, sang and smiled last night give you a sincere Standing Ovation. The U.S. loves you.Come back to the NYC real soon.
Quotes & Highlights
Goldstar members are raving about Human Nature in Vegas. Check out their reviews of the show.
As Martha and the Vandellas once put, “They’re dancing in the street in Chicago, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, PA, Baltimore and DC now…can’t forget the Motor City…Across the ocean blue, me and you.”
The music of Motown traveled around the globe, landing on the other side of the world in Sydney, Australia, where four high school students—brothers Andrew and Mike Tierney, Phil Burton and Toby Allen—were more interested in soul, gospel and harmony groups than their country’s usual obsession with “guitars, grunt and good old rock and roll.” Forming a singing group that began as a tribute to their love of a cappella doo-wop, the foursome was directed to the music of the legendary label by a music teacher.
That was 22 years ago. Today, Human Nature are Australia’s leading pop vocal group, having released nine albums (many containing their own, self-penned original material), five of which went to #1 in their native continent, selling millions of records world-wide and garnering 23 platinum awards, 70 Top 40 hits and five Top 10 hits. The group has opened for Celine Dion and Michael Jackson in Europe and Australia. Their chart-topping Motown tribute, Reach Out, went five-times-platinum, attracting the attention of famed songwriter Smokey Robinson, who recorded “Get Ready” with them and presented them in an exclusive booking at Las Vegas’ Imperial Palace, where they have played five and six nights a week to sold-out crowds for the past two and a half years.
