An evening of musical inspiration

Manhattan Girls Chorus presents world premiere of Tuvayhun, Beatitudes for a Wounded World, on April 27 in NYC

Tuvayhun, by composer Kim Andre Arnesen and lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri, will be performed at the Angel Orensanz Center in Manhattan. 

Hope. Universal human needs and dignity. Peace. Blessings. “Tuvayhun – Beatitudes for a Wounded World” captures these themes and seeks to inspire and unite through an extraordinary musical experience. On April 27, the Manhattan Girls Chorus will present the world premiere of this commissioned work by celebrated Norwegian classical composer Kim Andre Arnesen and acclaimed lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri, accompanied by a select group of world-renowned soloists and instrumentalists playing ancient instruments. The venue, the Angel Orensanz Center in downtown New York City, is the fourth-oldest surviving synagogue building in the country and provides a magnificent, soaring backdrop for the evening event. 

The Manhattan Girls Chorus itself is inspirational. Founded in 2011 by Director Michelle Oesterle, the Chorus includes 50 young women in grades 5 through 12 from all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They come together for musical excellence but also for leadership, self-esteem, and so important in today’s social-media, 24/7 world, a sense of community. The Chorus regularly appears on some of the world’s most famous stages, from Carnegie Hall to Lincoln Center, performing under iconic conductors as well as with rock and Broadway stars. Yet the girls are equally pleased to lend their voices to give back to the community, out of the limelight.
