DCINY PRESENTS REFLECTIONS OF PEACE
AT CARNEGIE HALL ON JANUARY 16, 2017 FEATURING THE NEW YORK CITY PREMIERE OF KIM ANDRE ARNESEN’S
REQUIEM


Guest conductor Catherine Sailer conducts Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass featuring Distinguished Concerts Orchestra and Distinguished Concerts Singers International


Flutopia Wind Ensemble, in its 16th season, will perform a selection of works including Tchaikovsky, Debussy, and Reed.


For immediate release – New York, NY – On January 16 at 7PM, Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) will present Reflections of Peace, a night of concert music featuring the NYC Premiere of Kim André Arnesen’s Requiem, Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass as well as selected works performed by Virginia-based wind ensemble Flutopia.

Kim André Arnesen is one of the most frequently performed classical composers from Norway today and is known for his extensive body of choral works. He is also an elected member of the Norwegian Society of Composers. Arnesen’s Requiem was Commissioned by The Nidaros Cathedral Boys´ Choir and conductor Bjørn Moe, Trondheim, Norway, and premiered in Nidaros Cathedral on April 6, 2014.

About his work, Arnesen has stated “My Requiem is not dedicated to any particular person or group. I wanted to write a requiem that could provide solace to people who are in pain and grieving, or to assist in a moment of remembrance and honoring.” Instead of utilizing the complete text of the original requiem Mass, Arnesen decided to include text from foreign sources such as Emily Dickinson’s poem Not In Vain. DCINY Associate Artistic Director James Meaders will lead this NYC Premiere.

Flutopia Wind Ensemble, in its 16th season, performs in venues across Northern, VA, and offer workshops that are distinctly unique to them, such as the “District Band Workshop” and “Flutopia Fest.” They have been invited by DCINY to perform at Carnegie Hall as part of their own ‘destination concert’ series.
