BBA students to perform in NYC
MANCHESTER — Burr and Burton Academy will have 24 students representing the school performing in New York City at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
The students will be part of a 175-member chorus from around the world and accompanied by an 88-piece orchestra from Lincoln Center. The students are sophomores, juniors and seniors who are member of the school’s vocal music ensemble.
The event is the premiere of Christopher Tin’s “Calling All Dawns” song cycle.
Tin, an American composer who has created music for orchestras and film, won two Grammys in 2011 for “Calling All Dawns,” his debut album. The awards made history as Tin became the first composer to be nominated for, or win, a Grammy for a piece of music written for a video game.
Tin and soloists from his original CD will be participating Sunday as well.
