The Chorus will pay tribute to American musical treasure, Leonard Bernstein (born 100 years ago in August 1918 and died October 1990), during the 2018-19 season.

In the season opening concert, Maestro Roger Melone conducts the Chorus and NMPhil musicians in performing Bach's brilliant Motet III: Jesu, meine Freude and Leonard Bernstein's delightful incidental music for The Lark by Jean Anouilh and Make Our Garden Grow from Candide.

Narrator and countertenor for The Lark is Sean Little, and Daniel Cummings is pianist for Make Our Garden Grow.

Immediately following the concert, please join us for our annual gala fundraiser at The Artichoke Café.
