Event description
The Cecilia Chorus of New York Presents The Belshazzar Project, a Multigenre Concert Experience, on March 7 at Church of St. Francis Xavier

About this Event

The Cecilia Chorus of New York will present The Belshazzar Project, a multigenre concert experience devised by Music Director and six-time ASCAP Programming Award winner Mark Shapiro, featuring music and spoken words inspired by the story of Belshazzar, the last king of the ancient Babylonian empire. Music by Alexandre Guilmant, Handel, Arseny Koreshchenko, Rossini, Schumann, Americans Johnny Cash, Harold Rome, and Penny Prince, along with poems and texts by Lord Byron, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and more explore the meaning of the writing on the wall and the consequences of being weighed in the balance and found wanting. The history of Belshazzar, and the account of his undoing in the Book of Daniel ground this varied repertoire in interpretations of a single, timeless theme.

The performance will feature acclaimed actor Kathleen Chalfant, along with Chance Jonas-O’Toole, tenor; Thomas West, baritone; Liana Harper Cruz and Bryan C. Paredes, actor/singers; and James Wetzel, organ. Soloist bios are available at https://ceciliachorusny.org/#/the-belshazzar-project/.
