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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Terese Genecco sings like Keely Smith with the energy of Louis Prima!” -Jazz vocalist/composer/lyricist Mark Winkler
“If you don’t know who Terese Genecco is, you should! It’s a gloomy world out there but with Terese Genecco & Her Little Big Band in the house, it’s a whole lot brighter!" —San Francisco Examiner
“Frisky retro fun! "-Time Out New York
‘There were no ’mice’ in the Rat Pack – it was strictly an all-boy’s club. But if Frank, Dean and Sammy ever returned from the Great Casino in the Sky, the first youngish female singer that I’d recommend to join their clan is this high-voltage entertainer. Ms. Genecco is deeply rooted in the early 1960s, the colorful last gasp of the era of swingin’ lovers, and, as such, draws equally from Louis Prima and Sammy Davis on one hand and Ray Charles and Elvis on the other." —Wall Street Journal
Terese Genecco is a New York City MAC, Back Stage Bistro, and _T__ime Out New York_ Magazine Award-Winning vocalist, bandleader, and comedian who has quickly become an audience and critic’s favorite during her open-ended run at New York’s Iridium Jazz Club.
The multi-award-winning, multi-talented vocalist, bandleader, and comedian is currently the longest-running nightclub act on Broadway, appearing here as a headliner at The Iridium NYC every month – for more than 72 performances – since her opening night in March of 2009.
Genecco has appeared in major music venues, performing arts centers and jazz festivals around the world since her cabaret debut in 2003 when she became San Francisco’s “Entertainer of the Year.” Genecco wrapped up a year-long run at San Francisco’s premiere nightclub, The Rrazz Room, in 2008 and relocated to New York City where she has continued to earn critical acclaim, another Bistro Award, two more MAC Awards (for Major Artist and Show of the Year) and a rabid fan following in her open-ended run of shows at The Iridium with her stellar 8-piece “Little Big Band.”
Before relocating to New York City, the San Francisco Examiner called Genecco the “love child” of Dean Martin and Judy Garland during her 2008 Rrazz Room run in San Francisco. Genecco and her 8-piece band of top-flight New York City jazz musicians put on a high-energy show reminiscent of Louis Prima, Keely Smith, and The Rat Pack era in Las Vegas.
