Vocal soloists include sopranos Hyunah Yu and Nola Richardson, alto Marietta Simpson, tenor John Wesley Wright, and baritone Kevin Deas. Tom Hall will lead a Choral Conversation beginning at 2 pm.
The choral writing is as richly textured as the baritone solos are directly communicative; the orchestration is masterful… The chorus offered clarity, sensitivity and power…Conductor Tom Hall effectively molded the enriching music.
