Evening Concert Series

September 2018–February 2019

 

As we celebrate 50 years of midday concerts, Trinity offers a new series of monthly evening performances to the Lower Manhattan neighborhood. Featuring The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, the fall evening series explores the theme of the setting sun, through cherished music of the Anglican tradition and Rachmaninoff’s treasured Vespers. The new year brings new music, as concerts in January and February are devoted to premieres of Trinity co-commissions, including works by Nico Muhly, David T. Little, Ellen Reid, and Daniel Schlosberg.
