Competition Winners/9 Premieres
Pre-concert talk with composers at 7:30
After contacting every high school choral teacher in New York State, we commissioned five gifted
student composers to write choral works for us: Yusei Hata, Peter Mainetti, Paige Pearson,
Justin Taveras, and Alex Whittington.
In addition, The New York Virtuoso Singers has had an ongoing competition of its own for
more than ten years. Here we offer the most recent winners:
Guy Barash: Stimmen (World Premiere)
Elizabeth Skola Davis: In Memory (World Premiere)
Russell Horton: Evening Waterfall (World Premiere)
Louis Karchin: Hymns from the Dark (American Premiere)
Thomas Stumpf: season of sorrow
We will also perform the American Premiere of Thea Musgrave’s Missa Brevis. Ninety-year old Thea was recently awarded the Queen’s Medal for Music 2017 by the Queen, which was presented to her in Buckingham Palace.

Mass for 3 Voices, Mass for 4 Voices, and Mass for 5 Voices
The Renaissance era of English music reached its highest peak in the works of William Byrd. His three mass- settings are the most perfect of Tudor masterpieces. Written and published between 1592 and 1599, they are the only existing settings in this genre by the composer. To hear all three presented in one evening is a rare privilege.
