SHU: Prayer for Peace Concert
Date(s): October 27, 2017 at 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: NJ Performing Arts Center (NJ PAC)
Seton Hall University’s School of Diplomacy and International Relations and College of Communication and the Arts present this Prayer for Peace benefit concert, The Power of One Voice, celebrating peace messengers worldwide.
Members of the Seton Hall University Chorus and the MidAtlantic Opera Orchestra, under the baton of noted conductor Jason Tramm, will perform Peteris Vasks’ Dona Nobis Pacem for choir and strings, and Moshe Knoll’s Psalm 133, followed by a unique performance of A Survivor from Warsaw by Arnold Schönberg, paired with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Op. 125.
The evening’s soloists will include soprano Allison Charney of NYC classical concert series “PREformances with Allison Charney,” baritone Mark Delavan of the Metropolitan Opera, acclaimed violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins from Broadway’s Fiddler on the Roof, and narration by veteran actor Jordan Charney, star of stage, screen and television. Global voices of peace will speak as part of this event, and the evening will also honor Luna Kaufman, a Holocaust survivor, activist, author, and lecturer.
The Prayer for Peace benefit concert series was founded to answer the call of Leonard Bernstein’s artistic mandate: “This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”
All proceeds from this event will fund scholarships for refugees to attend Seton Hall University. To learn about sponsorship opportunities to this concert benefiting a refugee scholarship as well as sponsorship benefits including an exclusive reception with the artists, visit: www.shu.edu/P4P2017.
