Glacier Chorale members to sing at Carnegie Hall

Print Article

Twenty members of the Glacier Chorale will travel to New York City on Saturday, Dec. 1, to sing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 “Ode to Joy” and “Choral Fantasy” under Maestro Jonathan Griffiths at Carnegie Hall, under the auspices of Distinguished Concerts International. This is the Chorale’s second appearance at this prestigious concert event, having participated in 2012 under former chorale conductor Jim Stanard.

Micah Hunter, Glacier Chorale’s conductor, will lead the group that leaves on Saturday to rehearse before the Monday, Dec. 3 performance.

“The Glacier Chorale was invited to participate in this concert, both because of our recent performances of both of these Beethoven works and because of our previous participation with DCINY in performing Handel’s ‘Messiah.’ Our singers are very excited to be part of this wonderful event,” he said.

Jonathan Griffith, conductor, co-founder and artistic director of Distinguished Concerts International New York, is an active conductor, educator, lecturer and consultant with conducting credits ranging across the world. DCINY is a production company based in New York City whose motto is “The Art of Performance – The Power of Education.” Its concert series includes choral and instrumental concerts in world-class venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall and Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Founded by Iris Derke (General Director) and Jonathan Griffith (Artistic Director and Principle Conductor) DCINY is driven by passion, innovative vision, a total belief in its artists and unwavering commitment to bring forth unforgettable audience experiences.
