Julian Wachner @50

Featuring Anthony Roth Costanzo, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, members of NOVUS NY, and Jeffrey Zeigler

6pm doors • 7pm show


From “gritty, fearless” (New York Times) presentations of early music to Pulitzer-winning premieres, conductor and composer Julian Wachner’s tireless musical output has left a lasting imprint on the musical life of New York City.

Having transformed the music ecosystem at the historic Trinity Church Wall Street, as the esteemed Principal Conductor of The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, and NOVUS NY, Julian’s music has been called “bold and atmospheric” (New York Times), offering “a compendium of surprises” (Washington Post).

Now, in honor of his 50th birthday, Julian returns to National Sawdust with friends and collaborators for Julian Wachner @50. MC’d by “vocally brilliant and dramatically fearless” countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo (New York Times), this concert features performances of works by Wachner — including his epic Epistle Mass — from The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler.

This celebration of a central figure in New York’s classical music world is sure to be a fascinating peek into one of our most fertile creative minds.
