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.

It was a fantastic show - full of energy and Angelique's special warmth. She is a ball of energy with an incredible voice and a knack for including her audience in the joy her music brings. Her voice is clear and sharp and strong and her repertoire full of high energy, upbeat music.
SOPAC was a special surprise - intimate, comfortable, a good sound system and acoustics and although iI drove, it's literally AT the train station and an easy commute from Manhattan. Great sports bar/Italian place on the corner for a drink and a bite before or after a show.
