FSI Enterprise Inc. along with NYC Concert and Music are proud to announce the last concert in our annual series for 2013 at Carnegie Hall in the Stern Auditorium on December 26, 2013 at 8pm.
New York Festival Orchestra and The Beethoven Memorial Chorus
The New York Festival Orchestra and Beethoven Memorial Chorus are an orchestra and chorus formed specifically for today’s concert. There are a lot of choruses in Japan with a love for Beethoven’s Ninth and there will be many concerts of the Ninth performed in various parts of Japan at the end of the year in particular. Today, volunteers rich in experience of performing the Ninth have gathered from Japan and, with the addition of Japanese people living in America and volunteer performers from inside America, are looking to give a performance as the Beethoven Memorial Chorus.
The New York Festival Orchestra has been formed by gathering together young performers who are active in various parts of America. All the members of the orchestra are extremely talented musicians who carry with them high hopes for the future and who will give a performance will all their might for the concert today.
Today’s performers will be under the guidance of the internationally active conductor Hideaki Hirai and the choral conductor Hideyuki Tsuji. This is a performance that will combine the necessary rigor and flexibility with a high level of precise musicianship and bountiful power of expression. Please enjoy the performance to the end.
