Empire City Men’s Chorus presents “Kinfolk Divine”
Empire City Men’s Chorus (ECMC) thrilled to present its spring concert, Kinfolk Divine – A concert ode to the feminine divine.
The concert will be performed on Friday, June 3rd & Saturday June 4th at 8:00 PM at the Church of the Holy Apostle at 296 Ninth Avenue (at 28th Street). The Chorus will then head uptown to present the same program on Tuesday, June 7th at 7:00 PM at the Broadway Presbyterian Church at 601 114th Street (at 114th and Broadway). Tickets for the concert range from $30 to $50, with $20 tickets available for students, seniors, and fellow artists. Tickets and more information about the show and ECMC can be found at www.empirecitymenschorus.org.
“Kinfolk Divine” is a concert in service of justice and equality. Through countless centuries humankind has given much of its central credence and musical attention to divine figures which are said to be male. In Kinfolk Divine the men of ECMC will sing to iterations of the divine feminine from Hindu, Buddhist, Celtic, and Judeo-Christian traditions. The performance will include reimagined choral works of treble and mixed-choir music from the incredible minds of Gustav Holst, Sergei Rachmaninov, Ethan Sperry, Joan Szymko, Jocelyn Hagen, Morten Lauridsen, Mari Valverde, James Taylor, and more in this life-affirming concert.
Empire City Men’s Chorus is a forward-thinking men’s chorus based in New York City. For over 27 years, ECMC’s high quality choral concert programming has brought countless audiences to their feet, made significant contributions to the tradition of men’s choral repertoire, and given back to its greater community through volunteer service, profit-sharing, and goodwill performances. ECMC is much more than an avocational men’s chorus. It is a tight-knit community that values fraternity, musical excellence, and social justice. Its membership reflects a diverse cross-section of New Yorkers, identifying with multiple racial and ethnic heritages and across the LGBTQ+ community.
