Come and witness two majestic gems performed by the American Classical Orchestra, in celebration of their 25th anniversary, with the Cathedral of St. John the Divine's Choir of Girls, Boys and Adults, the Choir of Trinity, New Haven, the choir of Trinity, Princeton, and 50 dancers from Purchase Dance Corps from SUNY and Ballet Hispanico School.
Handel's Coronation Anthems are from the Westminster Abbey Coronation of King George II in 1727. Cynthia Fuller-Kling has created contemporary choreography to enhance this noble music. The evening offers a rare opportunity to hear Beethoven’s towering Ninth Symphony performed by New York’s period-instrument orchestra with 150 choristers and soloists.
The American Classical Orchestra celebrates classical music performance on authentic instruments, specializing in repertoire from the 17th to 19th centuries. Founded by music director Thomas Crawford in 1985 as the Orchestra of the Old Fairfield Academy, the Orchestra works to render more faithfully music of the Baroque, Classical, and early Romantic eras. Comprised of leading period instrumentalists in the New York metropolitan region, the Orchestra has achieved significant critical acclaim through its performances and its professional recordings in New York City and Connecticut.
