Stephen Sands, founder and Artistic Director of Music in the Somerset Hills, is proud to present this New York choir, which he also directs, in its first visit to the Somerset Hills. Downtown Voices is a semi-professional choir made up of volunteer singers from the New York metro area and members of the Grammy®-nominated choir of Trinity Wall Street. Founded in 2016, the group has specialized in ambitious programming of works by composers as diverse as Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Philip Glass, Benjamin Britten – and a major commission to Zachary Wadsworth. Their concert on Saturday, April 27 is called Songs for the Singer – Dvorak, Britten and Janacek, and is based on the idea that “it is a treasure to hear what is a pleasure to sing”.
