The College of New Jersey Chorale will be the only choir to represent the United States as they perform Mahler’s Symphony No.2 along with three Japanese student choirs for the “Hand in Hand” benefit concert at Lincoln Center on March 28 at 7:30 PM. Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State, is expected to attend, along with other dignitaries from the United States and Japanese governments.
The Hand in Hand Concerts are designed to create an international opportunity to appeal for support for Japan’s reconstruction.
The concert is a collaboration between American musicians at TCNJ, the New York City Opera Orchestra, and three Japanese choirs: the MJC Ensemble from Fukushima, Tohoku Fukushi University Chorus Group from Miyagi and Iwate Prefectural University Chorus Group from Iwate. Mr. Atsushi Yamada will conduct the choirs, along with performances from soloists Yunah Lee and Leslie Valentine.
Ticketing information will be available soon!
