Outstanding choirs will collaborate with a guest conductor, professional orchestra, and soloist in rehearsals and performance on Adolphus Hailstork's "I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes" and Tom Trenney's "I Will Make A Way" at the world-famous Carnegie Hall. Hailstork's dramatic and moving "I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes" shines new light on three beloved psalms, creating a spiritually powerful testament of faith-- encouraging us to hold onto the hope that can lead us through the valleys of our lives. Composer and conductor Tom Trenney promises the singers and audiences alike a musical and spiritual experience that will open our hearts and inspire our hope.
An acclaimed guest conductor/composer and advanced choirs from all over the country come together to create an unforgettable performance filled with musical artistry and visual projections. Audiences have never seen a choral concert like this before. A performance at Carnegie Hall made even more inimitable in this one-time collaboration.
