Holidays with Dessoff: Welcome Yule!
NYSAIS Members are invited to a series of concerts and pre-concert lectures around the life of Walt Whitman.
Margaret Bonds and the Ballad of the Brown King
Dr. Ashley Jackson - 6:45 PM Pre-Concert Talk
The Dessoff Choirs ushers in the winter solstice with a rare performance of Margaret Bonds’ The Ballad of the Brown King, a holiday cantata focusing on Balthazar of the Three Kings. The text was written by Langston Hughes and the entire work was written in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. The concert begins with traditional holiday motets and a work by Michael T. Roberts using Whitman texts. The concert will conclude with Silent Night by candlelight and the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah.
