Thy Will Be Done makes its New York debut March 16, 2018 at Lincoln Center’s Geffen Hall

 

The National Chorale, under the direction of Everett McCorvey, marks its 50th anniversary with the New York premier of Thy Will Be Done an Easter oratorio composed, conducted and performed by Kentuckians.

Gregory Turay and Anthony Clark Evans, both winners of the prestigious Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and Richard Tucker Foundation Career Grants, will be joined by mezzo soprano Catherine Martin, praised for her “angelic vocals, perfect facial expressions,” and Kevin Thomson, an American bass described by the San Jose Mercury News as “brilliant in every regard.”  

Thy Will Be Done, a 90-minute work composed by Angela Rice, tells the story of the life, ministry, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. “The production is an amazing combination of Kentucky talents and world-class performers,” McCorvey said. “Where else can you hear two Met audition winners perform a new classical work with the National Chorale?”
