It is with great excitement that A Different Direction Choir can announce it is going to New York to sing at the internationally renowned venue of Carnegie Hall on Sunday 24 March 2018. We will be participating in Total Vocal – a performance of contemporary a cappella under the creative direction of arranger/producer Deke Sharon (The Sing-Off, Pitch Perfect) as part of the Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) concert series.
We will join choristers from around the world to form the Distinguished Concerts Singers International and sing on stage in one of the acts with some 250 singers, meaning there will be 500 singers from around the world in the entire concert. Deke Sharon will lead the performance and will serve as the clinician for the residency.
Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor forDCINY states: “A Different Direction Choir received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the exceptional quality of their audition recording.”
“It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and deserving of thecommunity’s recognition and support.”
