The innovative a cappella ensemble known as Khorikos debuts a piece from their own acclaimed competition, joining the Del Mar Master Chorus and Concert Choir and the Alice High School Honors Band for this performance at the world-famous Carnegie Hall. Famed for their cutting-edge take on everything from medieval polyphony to contemporary sound sculpture, Khorikos has performed with major U.S. and international orchestras, and is set to sing Frank La Rocca's Miserere, while the Del Mar ensemble also premieres a new work by Ross Bernhardt, along with Bob Chilcott's Canticles of Light. The Alice High band takes on an eclectic program of instrumental works for wind ensemble. Learn More

Karl Jenkins is the most popular living composer on the planet, yet his work remains under-appreciated in America, perhaps, due to the lack of exposure. This annual concert at Carnegie Hall on MLK Jr. Day is always a wonderful opportunity to hear his latest work as well as one of his older pieces. These massive choral pieces are incredibly beautiful and very well sung and performed. It was a special tribute to a fine composer on his 70th birthday.
