David Bernard shared Park Avenue Chamber Symphony's post.July 25th, 2016 at 2:19am
Please mark your calendars! On November 19th, I'll be conducting a Veteran's Day Gala featuring Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and the world premiere of Jake Runestad: "Dreams of the Fallen" for piano, chorus, and orchestra at Stern/Perelman/Carnegie Hall with the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony, a chorus of 210 voice including the West Point Glee Club, the New Amsterdam Singers and the Young New Yorkers' Chorus, the amazing pianist Jeffrey Biegel, and internationally renowned vocal soloists.

There is so much to say about this event. The music is spectacular--hearing Beethoven's Ninth at Carnegie Hall with these artists will be a phenomenal experience, and "Dreams of the Fallen" evokes the essence of the Vet's experience with a clarity and empathy that only music can deliver. Jake Runestad is a super-talented composer, creative evangelist and genuine great guy--it is an honor to perform the premiere of this work in New York!

Jeffrey Biegel is not only a well-known and accomplished artist, but a musician's musician. His love of music adds beauty and a compelling voice to every work he touches. It is always a thrill to work with him. And each of the choirs that will make up our incredible festival chorus bring immense talent and artistry to this important event.

So I hope you come this concert--not only to hear the great music, but also to honor our Veterans and to witness great music making among these brilliant artists. I hope to see you there!
