Rachmaninoff & Vigil for Peace

Rachmaninoff @ 150:
Six Part Songs for Women's Voices
Choral Concerto: 'O Mother of God Perpetually Praying'
Panteley the Healer
Vigil for Peace by Alexander Levine (world premiere)

On New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, The GRAMMY®-nominated Clarion Choir will give the world premiere of the Vigil for Peace by London-based composer Alexander Levine. Written during this time of ongoing tragic conflict in Eastern Europe, Levine has created a choral work that is hopeful and celebrates our common humanity. Steeped in the tradition of Eastern Orthodox sacred music, this new work promises to be a welcome addition to the repertoire. The Vigil for Peace, in the composer's own words, "endeavors to unify people's hearts and minds. The foundation stone of this effort lies in the notion of the ongoing dialogue between the old and the new."

Levine's Vigil for Peace will be performed alongside choral works by Sergei Rachmaninoff, including the Six Part Songs for Women's Voices and the Choral Concerto 'O Mother of God Perpetually Praying,' and Panteley the Healer as part of Clarion's ongoing celebration of Rachmaninoff's 150th anniversary year.
