The programs of Kent Tritle's spring 2019 concerts offer a display of the conductor's work on both a grand and intimate scale. 'New York's choral conducting superstar' (Time Out New York), leads the Oratorio Society of New York at Carnegie Hall in Sibelius's massive Kullervo, and in Verdi's mighty Requiem.
