The Dessoff Choirs Performs All-French Concert

St. jean Baptiste Church
184 East 76th Street
United States

The Dessoff Choirs

Hailed as “one of the great amateur choruses of our time (New York Today) for its “full-bodied sound and suppleness (The New York Times),” The Dessoff Choirs turns the church into a petit Paris with an all-French program that puts the spotlight on the brilliant French Impressionists of music: Marcel Dupré, Claude Debussy, Lili Boulanger, Reynaldo Hahn, Jean Langlais, and Francis Poulenc. Joined by accompanist Steven Ryan (celebrating his 20th anniversary season with Dessoff) and Dr. Raymond Nagem, Associate Organist at the Cathedral of St John the Divine, Dessoff presents a magnifique tribute to French composers and to the majesté of the organ.

Claude Debussy : Trois Chansons
Renaldo Hahn : L'obscurite
Francis Poulenc : Toccata
