The Schiller Institute NYC Chorus Presents Dona Nobis Pacem: 1968- 2018
In 1968, two great American leaders Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy were felled by assassins' bullets. On Christmas Eve of the same year, three American astronauts became the first human beings to orbit the moon, demonstrating that the dream of President John F. Kennedy was near realization, even after his untimely death. Now, the American people are called upon to abandon the last half century of degradation and war, and choose the optimistic path, identified as "the future Spirit of Humanity." In that spirit, the genius Ludwig van Beethoven once said that if his music were properly understood, "warfare in and among nations would become an impossibility." This performance is dedicated to that principle, and will be performed at the scientific tuning of C=256Hz.
The chorus is committed to creating a renaissance in the United States based on principles of Classical Composition. In music this means Italian Bel Canto placement of the voice at the proper scientific tuning, as advocated by Giuseppe Verdi of Middle C = 256 Hz (A no higher than 432 Hz).
The chorus is also committed to the performance of African-American Spirituals in keeping with the tradition of Hall Johnson, H.T. Burleigh and so many others, as part of the Classical tradition, and an important American contribution to great music.
