Get inspired at this evening of music celebrating life and freedom, including the New York premiere of Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living, a lush work for full orchestra and choir. This moving piece is an uplifting and inspiring perspective on life, love, loss, and renewal. Moving from the personal to the political, the evening will also feature the patriotic The Testament of Freedom by Randall Thompson and The Gettysburg Address by Mark Hayes. The Testament of Freedom was written for the bicentennial of Thomas Jefferson's birth with text taken from his writings. Written during World War II, it became popular as an uplifting message about the United States during wartime. The Gettysburg Address takes the immortal speech of Abraham Lincoln and sets it to a dramatic orchestral score. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: 92nd Street Y
"The quintessential New York institution" --New York Times
The 92nd Street Y is about people. The people of New York City and the surrounding area. The people of the United States and of the world. It's about people who entertain and challenge, inform and educate. It's about people who learn and discover, observe and participate.
The 92nd Street Y operates in the context of a history that spans over 130 years. Founded in 1874 as the Young Men's Hebrew Association where Jewish men could find harmony and good fellowship, the 92nd Street Y today has evolved into a world-renowned community and cultural center, an organization of exhilarating vitality and remarkable diversity, a proudly Jewish institution that reaches out to people of every race, ethnicity, religion, age and economic class.
At once a lecture hall, a performance space, a school, a health center and a community organization, the Y remains focused on its mission of enriching the lives of the people who pass through its doors - women and men, young families and senior citizens, accomplished artists and aspiring beginners, master instructors and enthusiastic students, world leaders and concerned citizens.
