A Spectacular Chanukah
Classical Music Performance

Featuring GRAMMY winners Anthony Roth Costanzo and Angel Blue;
The Knights and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus

An Everlasting Light, a musical evening celebrating Chanukah,
conceived and sponsored by Dr. Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel

All are invited as guests!

Following the jubilant success of last year’s performance of Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo returns to Temple Emanu-El to curate and perform this very special Chanukah celebration featuring soprano Angel Blue, the versatile orchestra collective The Knights, and the powerhouse Brooklyn Youth Chorus! The performance, conducted by Eric Jacobsen, with cantorial soloist Steven Fox and commentary by Shalom Goldman of Middlebury College, will begin with selections from Handel’s celebrated oratorio on Chanukah themes. It will also feature some of his most exquisite arias, and then offer an exploration of the work of contemporary composers and modern masters, including a work by Carlos Simon written especially for Costanzo and the BYC, and a 20th-century reimagining of traditional folk music.

Featuring:
Anthony Roth Costanzo, countertenor “brilliant” (New York Times)
Angel Blue, soprano “radiant” (New York Times)
Eric Jacobsen, conductor “an interpretive dynamo” (New York Times)
Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Dianne Berkun Menaker, Artistic Director
Shalom Goldman, scholar and religion professor at Middlebury College
Steven Fox, cantorial soloist
