Enjoy uplifting a cappella choral selections exploring themes of nature with choral music from the 14th to 21st century.
On the heels of their outdoor performance in Yonker’s exquisitely restored Untermeyer Gardens, the Voices of Ascension Singers will present a one-hour program in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, Wednesday, August 24, 6 PM to 7 PM (rain date 8/25). Enjoy uplifting a cappella choral selections exploring themes of nature with choral music from the 14th to 21st century.
The chamber ensemble is drawn from the critically acclaimed Voices of Ascension Chorus and Orchestra, founded and directed by conductor Dennis Keene and based at the Church of the Ascension, the oldest church on 5th Avenue, located in the heart of Greenwich Village. This program draws on universal themes. Its setting in the Center Performance Circle of Dag Plaza, surrounded by trees and flowers, is sure to be uplifting.
This free performance kicks off Hammarskjold Plaza’s participation in the Nature Heals campaign of Parks and Open Space Partners. New York City may have the densest population of any US city, but did you know that we’re also one of the greenest cities, filled with parks and gardens to renew our spirit and help keep us physically fit.
Dag Hammarskjold Plaza and its Katharine Hepburn Garden is the largest public park in midtown east Manhattan.
PRESENTED BY FRIENDS OF DAG HAMMARSKJOLD PLAZA, A NONPROFIT 501C3 ORGANIZATION SERVING IN COOPERATION WITH NYC PARKS & RECREATION.
