Philip Glass Symphony No. 5

When: 8:00 pm, May 20, 2017

Where: Trinity Church

Broadway at Wall Street, New York, NY  

Written to mark the turn of the millennium, Philip Glass’s Symphony No. 5 manifests Gustav Mahler’s opinion that “The symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything.”

Glass draws from diverse spiritual wellsprings, including the Bible, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the Koran, Hindu scriptures, and West African traditions to create an epic narrative.

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, Downtown Voices, and NOVUS NY combine their full forces to perform this all-embracing masterpiece.
