Distinguished Concerts International New York City (DCINY) announced today that Marlene Stanley and Sojo Choral Arts have been invited to participate in a performance of The Music of Mark Hayes on the DCINY Concert Series in New York City. This performance, which will feature a World Premiere, is planned to take place in Isaac Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall on Monday, November 26, 2018. These outstanding musicians will join with other choristers to form the Distinguished Concerts Singers International, a choir of distinction. Conductor and Composer Mark Hayes will lead the performance and will serve as the clinician for the residency.
Why the invitation was extended?
Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY states: “Sojo Choral Arts received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the exceptional quality of their audition recording. 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. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and deserving of the community’s recognition and support.” The singers will spend 5 days and 4 nights in New York City in preparation for their concert. “The singers will spend approximately 9- 10 hours in rehearsals over the 5 day residency.” says Griffith. “Not all of the time is spent in rehearsals, since there is so much history and culture to see in New York City. However, the performance is the primary purpose for their visit to the city.” Members of the community are encouraged to give financial support in sending these singers to New York by contacting McKell Scanlan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
