The Trinity Choir, renowned for its performances of sacred music at the historic Trinity Wall Street Church and St. Paul's Chapel in lower Manhattan, moves uptown this spring for a wide-ranging program of contemporary works at Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall. For the May 31 concert, which marks the Trinity Choir's Zankel Hall debut, Music Director Julian Wachner will conduct his own Rilke Songs and works by three of today's fast-rising composers: Laura Elise Schwendinger, Du Yun, and Luna Pearl Woolf. The program also includes Pearl Woolf's poignant, virtuosic response to Hurricane Katrina, Après moi, le déluge, for which the choir will be joined by cellist Matt Haimovitz. The program also incorporates five of America's best-loved spirituals: "Ain'a That Good News!," "There Is a Balm in Gilead," "Soon Ah Will Be Done," "Precious Lord," and "Battle of Jericho." The Zankel concert highlights the range and versatility of Trinity Wall Street's music programs in venues outside its Trinity Wall Street Church home, following the Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra's December 2011 Lincoln Center debut with Handel's Messiah at Alice Tully Hall.
