Conductor

Alan Gilbert, former Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, launches a new appointment as chief conductor designate of Hamburg’s NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra this fall, shortly after the opening of its already iconic new home. The Grammy Award–winning conductor previously served as principal guest conductor of the orchestra (then known as NDR Symphony Orchestra Hamburg) for more than a decade, and will assume the role of chief conductor in September 2019. This position follows his truly transformative eight-year tenure as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, during which, through such key initiatives as the NY PHIL BIENNIAL, he succeeded in making the Orchestra a leader on the cultural landscape. Alan Gilbert is also conductor laureate of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and the founder and president of Musicians for Unity. With the endorsement and guidance of the United Nations, this new organization will bring together musicians from around the world to perform in support of peace, development, and human rights.

Alan Gilbert makes regular guest appearances with orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. He has led operatic productions for Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, The Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Zurich Opera, Royal Swedish Opera, and Santa Fe Opera, where he was the inaugural music director.

His discography includes The Nielsen Project, a box set recorded with the New York Philharmonic, and John Adams’s Doctor Atomic, captured on DVD at The Metropolitan Opera, for which he won a Grammy Award. He received Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Music Direction in PBS’s Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts of two star-studded New York Philharmonic productions: of Sweeney Todd and Sinatra: Voice for a Century.

Alan Gilbert has received Honorary Doctor of Music degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and Westminster Choir College, as well as Columbia University’s Ditson Conductor’s Award. He is a member of The American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and was named an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. At The Juilliard School, he is the first holder of the William Schuman Chair in Musical Studies and serves as Director of Conducting and Orchestral Studies. After giving the annual Royal Philharmonic Society Lecture on Orchestras in the 21st Century: A New Paradigm during the New York Philharmonic’s EUROPE / SPRING 2015 tour, he received a 2015 Foreign Policy Association Medal for his commitment to cultural diplomacy.

Chorus

Musica Sacra, the longest continuously performing professional chorus in New York City, was founded in 1964 by Richard Westenburg and is now under the artistic leadership of Kent Tritle, who begins his 12th season in 2018. Musica Sacra presents performances each year at venues throughout New York, including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; its annual performances of Handel’s Messiah at Carnegie Hall are a New York holiday tradition.

The chorus is frequently invited to appear with ensembles such as Orchestra of St. Luke’s, at the New York City Ballet, in the Mostly Mozart Festival, and by concert presenters throughout the region.

The chorus has given World and New York Premieres of more than 25 choral works, including, most recently, the World Premiere of Evan Fein’s oratorio Deborah, based on the Biblical character from the Book of Judges, at Alice Tully Hall. The group’s most recent recording is Eternal Reflections, an album of vocal works by Robert Paterson, the award-winning composer and founder of the American Modern Ensemble. Its growing discography on the BMG, RCA, MSR Classics, and Deutsche Grammophon labels includes Messages to Myself, a program of recent works by Daniel Brewbaker, Michael Gilbertson, Zachary Patten, Behzad Ranjbaran, and Christopher Theofanidis.

Musica Sacra’s community engagement initiative, in partnership with schools and social service organization in the New York metropolitan area, reflects its dedication to educating students in the appreciation and history of choral music. In addition, Musica Sacra presents informational sessions for adult audiences to help contextualize their concert experience. Musica Sacra made its New York Philharmonic debut in the live to film presentation of 2001: A Space Odyssey in September 2013, and most recently appeared with the Orchestra in the New York Premiere screening of Amadeus: Live in April 2018.

Kent Tritle is one of America’s leading choral conductors. In addition to leading Musica Sacra, he is director of cathedral music and organist at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, music director of the Oratorio Society of New York, director of choral activities at the Manhattan School of Music, and a member of the graduate faculty of The Juilliard School. Also an acclaimed organ virtuoso, he is the organist of the New York Philharmonic and the American Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Tritle’s 2018–19 season is marked by the expansion of the Oratorio Society’s Carnegie Hall season from three to four concerts, which will include Kullervo, Sibelius’s rarely performed symphonic poem, and Szymanowski’s Stabat Mater. From 1989 to 2011 he conducted the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space series at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, and from 1996 to 2004 he was music director of the Emmy-nominated Dessoff Choirs. He hosted The Choral Mix with Kent Tritle, a weekly program devoted to the vibrant world of choral music, on WQXR from 2010 to 2014.
