Grammy-winning video game composer Christopher Tin comes to Carnegie Hall for The Drop of Dawn, a concert presented by DCINY spotlighting a pair of his orchestral suites, including a world premiere. Artistic director and principal conductor Jonathan Griffith leads the Distinguished Concerts Orchestra and Singers International in the debut of The Drop That Contained the Sea, a stirring new world-music piece accompanied by 200 voices. The performance also includes the Carnegie Hall premiere of Calling All Dawns, featuring "Baba Yetu," the theme song for Civilization IV. That work became the first ever written for a video game to win a Grammy. 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.
