Trinity Wall Street Choir Concert
Johns Creek United Methodist Church
7/8/2020 3:30 PM – 4:40 PM
Peerless, Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has redefined the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times, London). Under the direction of Julian Wachner, this premier ensemble leads liturgical music on Sundays at Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel, while performing in “Bach + One,” “Compline by Candlelight,” “Time’s Arrow,” and many other concerts and festivals throughout the year.
The choir has toured extensively, making appearances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Berkeley Early Music Festival, BAM Next Wave Festival, Utrecht Festival (150 Psalms Project), Lincoln Center White Light Festival, and the Prototype Festival, as well as at Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and London’s Barbican Theatre.
In addition to its Grammy-nominated Israel in Egypt album, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has recordings on Decca Gold, Orange Mountain Music, Naxos, Musica Omnia, VIA Recordings, ARSIS, and Avie Records. Trinity’s long-term commitment to new music is evident in partnerships with living composers including Ellen Reid, Du Yun, Paola Prestini, Ralf Gawlick, and Elena Ruehr; and the choir collaborated on and recorded three Pulitzer Prize-winning works: Anthracite Fields (Julia Wolfe), Angel’s Bone (Du Yun), and p r i s m (Ellen Reid).
