Which will be performed Friday, August 8, 2014.
Brokedown Palace with David Bryan and friends
Lyrics by: Robert Hunter
Music by: Jerry Garcia
Presented by Mid-Manhattan Performing Arts Foundation (MMPAF)
On the eve of the 19th anniversary of Garcia's death, the Mid-Manhattan Performing Arts Foundation will host a celebration of the music of Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter -- the chief lyricist with whom Garcia worked for most of his performing career. This celebration is being spearheaded by David Bryan (St. Bart's Director of Welcome, Inclusion and Incorporation), an eclectic musician with years of performance experience in the New York music scene. With several guest musicians, David will honor the life of this American cultural icon, as audience and musicians come together to explore the power, beauty, and grace of some of the richest recent additions to the American songbook -- such as the timeless tune "Brokedown Palace," from the inimitable 1970 album American Beauty.

MUSIC FROM THE NORDIC CHOIR CONCERT
Which was performed Tuesday, January 22, 2013.
THE NORDIC CHOIR
Over 100 years ago, the pioneering choral conductor, F. Melius Christiansen established an a cappella choral tradition at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. This discipline aimed for perfection in intonation, blend and diction and has influenced American choral singing to the present day. One of the greatest proponents of this tradition of choral excellence is the Nordic Choir of Luther College. MMPAF Great Music at St. Bart's hosted this exemplary 75 voice choir in concert performing works of Weelkes, Schütz, Bach, Jennings and Christiansen. Dr. Allen Hightower conducted. Recording: Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at St. Bart's Episcopal Church, NYC
