Sing for Hope/One Voice: Evening of Art Songs and Opera

As one of the first of many bicentennial celebrations, and in keeping with our 200 year tradition of ministering to the poor, on the evening of Tuesday June 3 at 7:30pm, Grace Church will host Sing for Hope: OneVoice, An Evening of Art Songs and Opera, a night of Opera favorites to benefit Partners in Grace, a coalition of eighteen groups and organizations working to eradicate homelessness in New York City. Metropolitan Opera soprano (and Grace Church chorister) Holli Harrison and fellow stars of the international music scene will star, performing a concert that celebrates the human spirit, with works by Mozart, Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, Offenbach and Bernstein.

Thanks to the generosity of Grace Church and the artists donating their performances, all of the event’s proceeds will directly support the vital outreach programs of Partners In Grace. Partners in Grace, a coalition of charitable organizations, meets the pressing needs of New York City’s hungry and homeless through an array of comprehensive, complementary service programs.

Along with soprano Holli Harrison (The Metropolitan Opera), the concert will also feature Christine Goerke (The Metropolitan Opera), Rochelle Small Clifford (Harlem Opera Theatre), and Camille Zamora (Los Angeles Opera); Mezzo-Sopranos Elise Quagliata (Glimmerglass Opera); Tenors Javier Abreu (New York City Opera) and Joel Weiss (Opera Pacific); Baritones Matthew Worth (Chicago Opera Theater) and Brian Kontes (Opera Orchestra of New York).
