The Civil War is often compared with the Trojan War. They were both long, bloody struggles that inspired many words, images and sounds. At perhaps the most appropriate setting in Manhattan, the Collegiate Chorale presents the NY premiere of David Lang's "battle hymns." The Pulitzer Prize-winning composer has written a cappella arrangements for a letter from a Union solider to his wife, three songs by Stephen Foster and Lincoln's definition of democracy featuring the phrase, “As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master.” Yet despite these deep connections to The Civil War, the composer's intent is not to send a "message" but to get listeners to think about what war means on a personal level. Tonight, experience the New York premiere of his works performed by the Manhattan Girls Chorus and members of the Veteran Artist program in a landmark setting. If you want aboard, best purchase your tickets now, they aren't available onsite.
