Dear friends of GHOSTLIGHT,
In case you missed it—or want to relive what one audience member called "a soothing, ethereal bath of sound that was nothing short of a religious experience"—a recording of our fall concert, BELOVED, is now available for purchase on our website. The repertoire is very close to our hearts and probes into love and longing across centuries and languages.
Coming up, we have one of our favorite traditions: sharing holiday music with you all at the beautiful Church of St. Luke in the Fields! This year’s concert—GLORIA—seeks to capture the spirit of Advent, exploring the contemplation and preparation necessary for true joy and celebration. The program features Schütz's "Deutsches Magnificat," Buchenberg's "Missa ad maiorem Dei gloriam" (complete with a band!), and the premiere of New York composer Steve Friedman's "O Magnum Mysterium."
As always, we'll end with a sing-along of beloved Christmas carols, followed by a festive wine and cookie reception.
Saturday, December 10th at 7:00pm
Church of St. Luke in the Fields (487 Hudson St., New York, NY)
Tickets can be purchased directly on our website ($40 general / $20 student)
