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.

The band was absolutely fantastic! Michel and his band played with expertise and passion! The only thing I would suggest in the future, there should be Jazz or Cuban music played during the beginning of the cruise prior to the band coming on for their set. I loaned my Ipod which is filled with Jazz and Cuban music, to the sound guy, because he was using someone's Ipod which had R&B music on it. It was weird. The majority of the audience including myself did not come on the Jazz cruise to hear R&B. So I was grateful I could be of help with my music, which was the appropriate music for the Jazz cruise! Again, Michel's Joven Jazz band was awesome!!!

“At the age of 26, the prodigious saxophonist and composer Michel Herrera is one of the brightest young stars in today’s Cuba… One of the greatest saxophonists to emerge in the largest Caribbean island since Paquito D’Rivera defected to the U.S.A. in 1980.” –Luis Tamargo, Latin Beat Magazine
