Biography

The Concert Chorale of New York (CCNY) is a group of professional singers that has appeared at the Caramoor Festival, in the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s production of John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer, and in Handel’s L’Allegro with the Mark Morris Dance Company. The chorale performed at the Performing Arts Center at Purchase and in Live From Lincoln Center’s Emmy-nominated A Salute to the American Musical. CCNY has appeared with American Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Opera Orchestra of New York, and participated in the New York Premiere of Paul McCartney’s Ecce Cor Meum and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel in concert at Carnegie Hall. The ensemble appears regularly at the Mostly Mozart Festival, performing repertoire ranging from Haydn and Mozart to Bernstein and collaborating with Louis Langrée, Gianandrea Noseda, and Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra. For the Lincoln Center Festival it appeared in Julie Taymor’s production of Eliot Goldenthal’s Grendl and Danny Elfman’s Music from the Movies of Tim Burton (the latter televised on Live From Lincoln Center). Last season, CCNY performed all of Bernstein’s choral works, including Chichester Psalms paired with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Bernstein’s MASS and Mozart’s Requiem at Mostly Mozart. The ensemble’s discography includes Kismet and Man of La Mancha with Paul Gemignani (CBS Records), Stephen Sondheim’s The Frogs (Nonesuch), and recordings with the American Symphony Orchestra and Opera Orchestra of New York. The men of the chorale were featured on a Pet Shop Boys recording (EMI). This season’s upcoming New York Philharmonic collaborations include Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, Resurrection, and John Adams’s Harmonium. The artistic administrator for the Chorale is Jacqueline Pierce.

James Bagwell maintains an active international schedule as a conductor of choral, operatic, and orchestral music. In 2015 he was named associate conductor of The Orchestra Now while continuing his role as principal guest conductor of the American Symphony Orchestra. From 2009 to 2015 he was music director of The Collegiate Chorale; highlights of his tenure include conducting rarely-performed operas in concert, including Bellini’s Beatrice di Tenda, Rossini’s Moise et Pharaon, and Boito’s Mefistofele. He conducted the New York Premieres of Philip Glass’s Toltec Symphony and Osvaldo Golijov’s Oceana at Carnegie Hall, and trained choruses for the Boston Symphony, Mostly Mozart, Israel Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, NHK Symphony, St. Petersburg Symphony, Budapest Festival, American Symphony, and Cincinnati Symphony orchestras, and the Verbier and Salzburg Festivals. He has prepared choruses with conductors including Andris Nelsons, Gianandrea Noseda, Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Lorin Maazel, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Michael Tilson Thomas, Louis Langrée, Robert Shaw, and Leonard Slatkin. He is professor of music and director of performance studies at Bard College and Bard College Conservatory of Music.
