Clarion Masked Ball

Join Clarion for an unforgettable dinner, auction, and performances by singers from The Clarion Choir at the elegant Cosmopolitan Club.

Honorary Chair and Metropolitan Opera star Susan Graham joins us in celebrating the extraordinary artistic achievements of New York musical treasure Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, esteemed choral director, and brilliant organist.

Founded in 1957, The Clarion Music Society—comprising The Clarion Orchestra and The Clarion Choir—focuses on performing Early Music on period instruments and related initiatives spanning education and musical diplomacy. By invitation from the U.S. State Department, this October the Clarion Society will embark on its first­ever international tour to premiere the lost choral masterwork "Passion Week" by Russian composer Maximilian Steinberg. Gala proceeds will directly support our tour and concerts in two iconic venues: St. Petersburg's Grand Philharmonic Hall and Moscow's Rachmaninoff Hall.
