Benjamin Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols"

Kaufman Music Center

New York City, NY, United States

This is a past event


Hosted by Rob Kapilow and featuring Accord Treble Choir, Special Music School Treble Choir and harpist Karen Tay. Celebrate the season with Benjamin Britten’s brilliant and much-loved holiday work for treble chorus, solo voices and harp! Inspired by a book of medieval poetry Britten accidentally discovered during a fateful sea voyage in 1942, A Ceremony of Carols pairs ancient texts with modern music, reimagining them for a new generation. Dismissed as unfashionable by some of his contemporaries for writing tonal music at a time when twelve-tone music and serialism were on the rise, Britten is now considered a central figure of 20th-century music.
