We hope you enjoy watching our November 2022 performance of “Misa a Buenos Aires”! This performance kicked off our season of choral music of Latin America, and features a program full of gorgeous pieces, anchored by Martín Palmeri’s “Misatango” – a stunning work for chorus, mezzo soloist, solo bandoneon, and orchestra. It was a joy for us to learn and perform then, and it is a joy to share it with you now. 

The video is available free of charge from now through December 31, and we encourage you to share it with anyone else who may be interested! We also hope that if you enjoy this music, you will make a gift to support our future concerts (and recordings).

As with many non-profits, this is an important time of year for NYCMC, and we are aiming to raise $5,000 before year-end. This level of support makes a concrete difference for our organization – it’s the cost of reserving rehearsal space for one of our concert cycles, commissioning a brand new work, or bringing in our incredible guest artists, soloists, and collaborators.

We’re pursuing these types of opportunities on an increasingly frequent basis – in 2023, we commissioned guitarist and composer João Luiz, who wrote MadrigAfro III – A Canção do Africano for guitar and chorus, a piece we premiered in May. In 2024 we will premiere a newly commissioned work from Tara Mack. In the past year, we have hired a 17-piece orchestra, bandoneonist Shinjoo Cho, mezzo-soprano Miastasha Gonzalez-Colón, guitarist Gabriele Leite, the Academy of Sacred Drama ensemble, soprano Nola Richardson, and a four-piece chamber ensemble.

You can help us do even more. With two more concerts this season and an upcoming 20th anniversary season, now more than ever, we would be deeply grateful for your support at any level.
