The Blue Sea Slumbers— Featuring GHOSTLIGHT

  • St. Paul's German Lutheran Church 315 West 22nd Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

This evening’s works span over 500 years and highlight the great heritage of choral singing through the versatility of the GHOSTLIGHT Chorus. Rarities for mixed choir by Clara Schumann and Johannes Ockeghem are paired with J.S.Bach’s masterful motet for double chorus. GHOSTLIGHT then joins Festival musicians in Binna Kim’s Festival Commission stacked emotions and the World Premiere performance of Requiem by Kathryn Salfelder.  To get a taste of Salfelder’s incredible work, click here.
