Music Center at Strathmore
Called “America’s favorite choral ensemble” by the New Yorker magazine, this acclaimed male chorus “proves that the human voice is truly the king of instruments” (Christian Science Monitor). The Grammy Award-winning ensemble lends its lush, orchestral sound to 250 years of American music—from the first documented song written in America in 1759.
The program includes the premiere of David Conte’s “The Homecoming” about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the premiere of Eric Whitacre’s choral arrangement of his “Sleep My Child,” and works by Samuel Barber, P.D.Q. Bach, and Stephen Foster.
