Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings in concert, Carnegie Hall, June 15, 2010!
We’ll do a full concert version of the show, with soloists, taiko drummers, strings, a DJ, and a massive sound system. I’ll be the one on the podium, waving my arms around and smiling like my head is going to fall off. Hard to describe how excited I am for this.
But what about the choir, you ask? That’s the best part: the choir will be made up of singers and choirs from all over the country, selected specifically for the event. My hope is to have several hundred of the finest singers in the country on stage with us, bringing the complete story of Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings to New York in the grandest possible way. If you or your choir would like to audition to be a part of the “choir of angels”, please go to the DCINY site for more information and an application.
If you’d like to buy tickets to see the event, they will go on sale soon – I’ll give you a heads-up before they go on sale. And I’ll be posting video updates of the process as we prepare for this epic performance, and posting them here and at www.ericwhitacre.com.
So here we go… GOOD GOD I AM EXCITED!
