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

A total surprise. I expected only to hear some live bluegrass music to be played by Monroe crossing. Instead, I experienced a totally unexpected chorale, a beautifully conceived and presented vocal symphony supported by the delicately and subtly balanced bluegrass musicianship (and vocals) of Monroe Crossing.
A real treat!
