Concerts at One: Britten
Trinity Wall Street Music and the Arts is proud to focus its fall programming on the versatile and prolific composer, Benjamin Britten, in honor of his 100th birthday.
Celebrated favorites and rarely-performed works of Britten’s repertory will be presented, led by Director of Music and the Arts, Julian Wachner, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and NOVUS NY. Other featured artists include tenor Nicholas Phan, cellist Matt Haimovitz, and The Trinity Youth Chorus.
Trinity Wall Street programming runs concurrently with the global celebration “britten100,” which is coordinated by the Britten-Pears Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting the music of Benjamin Britten and his work with singer Peter Pears, and based at the home they shared, The Red House, in Aldeburgh, England.
