A New York City Christmas


A New York City Christmas is part of Sechrist Travel’s NYC based festival series at Carnegie Hall.  This year’s festival features TWO amazing opportunities for a MASS CHOIR event, both accompanied by the fully professional New York City Festival Chamber Orchestra!

Join Composer-In-Residence, Dr. Dan Forrest, and Guest Conductor, Dr. Pearl Shangkuan, as they create a repertoire to gladden the heart and ring in the season.  Dr. Shangkuan will direct the program, with Dr. Forrest in attendance to lend his unique perspective on his own works!  Rarely do you have the opportunity to work with two well-known masters of choral music in the same festival.  Those choirs familiar with Dr. Forrest’s compositions and arrangements will not want to miss this unique occasion.


Sing under the direction of legendary Guest Conductor, Dr. Jo-Michael Scheibe, as he collaborates with the Norwegian Composer-In-Residence, Kim André Arnesen.  Kim’s unique harmonies and emotional melodies are quickly lifting him to prominence in the choral world.  It is sure to be an amazing experience to work with them both!

These opportunities are appropriate for Adult Community Choirs, University Choral Programs, High School Choirs and Individual Singers.

Deposits for both festivals are currently being accepted until May 22nd!
