The Dessoff Choirs Celebrates Walt Whitman Bicentennial

Saturday, 1 June 2019, 1.00am

Hailed as “one of the great amateur choruses of our time” (New York Today) for its “full-bodied sound and suppleness” (The New York Times), The Dessoff Choirs ends its 94th season on the 200th anniversary of the birth of American poet and journalist Walt Whitman (1819-1892). For the final concert of a season-long celebration of Whitman’s bicentennial, Dessoff’s 50 singers will perform exquisite choral settings of Whitman’s poetry, including works by Howard Hanson and Gregg Smith as well as the world premieres of Eve Beglarian’s None More Than You, Ian Sturges Milliken’s Quicksand Years, and Matthew Aucoin’s choral settings of Crossing, both commissioned by Dessoff.
