This month, the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Julian Wachner begin an impressive tour with a three-concert stop in Norway, followed by two performances in the Netherlands.
The Grammy-nominated choir presents a series of early works while in attendance at the Stavanger Kammermusikkfestival with the music of Bach, Byrd, and Palestrina. Since 1991, Stavanger Kammermusikkfestival ranks as one of Norway’s top chamber music festival. The festival is both “totally surprising, and magnificent.”
Wachner and the Choir of Trinity Wall Street later head to Utrecht for performances (September 1-2) at the Utrecht Early Music Festival. The performances are part of the 150 Psalms Project, an ode to choral music. In the span of one weekend, the festival will share 12 concerts featuring 150 psalms from 150 different composers. The project honors the 80th Anniversary of the festival.
The inspiration for this project spurs from the 150 songs found in the Book of Psalms. The topics found in the book span issues like justice, humanity, and compassion that are recurring in today’s society. The Trinity Wall Street Choir is one of four esteemed choirs to be performing at the event.
