The Savannah Arts Academy Chorale has been invited to participate in a performance of the music of Eric Whitacre on the DCINY Concert Series in New York City on March 31, 2014 at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall.
Composer Eric Whitacre will be conductor of the performance and clinician for the residency.
Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY states: “The Savannah Arts Academy Chorale received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers. It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community.”
To raise funds for their travel to New York City, the chorus invites you to attend a Dinner Concert on October
