The Choir and Soloists Will Deliver the World Premiere of “A Hymn to Life”
Los Angeles-based composer Dante De Silva will make his debut with the St. Matthew’s Music Guild, presenting his thrilling composition “Hermitage,” which blends tones of the steel drum with the classical orchestra.
Taking the stage, the Choir and Soloists of St. Matthew’s Parish will deliver the world premiere performance of “A Hymn To Life,” a commissioned work by acclaimed composer David Conte, known for his body of work with over 150 compositions published by E.C. Schirmer. Conte’s latest piece serves as a tribute to the late Fred Doering, a cherished member of the SMMG board.
The event will also feature “Liner notes with Tom Neenan” from 7:10pm to 7:50pm, providing commentary on the evening’s performances.
