This December, come hear the pristine voices of the National Children’s Chorus, telling a heartfelt story, and guiding audience members on an extraordinary musical journey. As winter envelops the stage, our students explore concepts of darkness and light, while sharing their determination to weather the storm. Musical highlights at the NCC’s 3rd major appearance at Lincoln Center include Sleep, by Eric Whitacre; Snow Angel by Sarah Quartel; and the East Coast premiere of a new work by Sharon Farber. The NCC Scholars SATB ensemble will also sing Frostiana, Randall Thompson’s classic setting of country poems by Robert Frost. Don’t miss what promises to be a stunning celebration of the holidays, featuring members of our Senior Division from Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C.!
