Adriel Miles of Shelburne recently shared his vocal talents with the tenor section of the Ithaca College Choir at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall on April 19. Home to the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts has been called by Frommer’s Travel Guides as “New York City’s foremost institution.” Miles is a sophomore Music Composition major in the Ithaca College School of Music.
“Performing on one of the major stages is the quintessential musical experience for students just beginning their careers,” said the choir’s conductor Lawrence Doebler. “As our graduates move into the professional world, touring and performing at prominent venues have been instrumental in shaping their futures.”
In addition to the Choir performing Byrd’s “Laudibus in sanctis” and Britten’s “Hymn to St. Cecilia,” the program included the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra performing “Atmospheres” by Ligeti and “Concerto for Orchestra” by Lutoslawski. Both ensembles gave a combined performance of Poulenc’s “Gloria.”
