How does an award-winning chorale choose a music director/conductor? If you are the Fairfield County Chorale, you narrow down the applicants and allow each of the finalists to create a program for the public. The audience can say that they got to hear the young conductor at his or her debut with this organization. Guest conductor David Rosenmeyer will lead the chorale and its orchestra on Saturday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Norwalk Concert Hall. This concert features Luigi Cherubini’s Requiem in C Minor and a world premiere performance of Thomas Cabaniss’ My Song is a Fire.
Mr. Rosenmeyer received a B.A. in Orchestral Conducting from the Universidad Católica in Argentina, and a Master of Music in Conducting and Music Theory from Mannes College of Music, where he also received the Felix Salzer Award for achievement in analysis and theory. In 2007, he made his Carnegie Hall debut, leading The Oratorio Society of New York in Igor Stravinsky’s Mass. He has served as Music Director of the Bach Society of Columbia University, the Mannes Chorus, and Horizon Concerts. He currently serves as Associate Conductor of The Oratorio Society of New York, as Music Director of the NYU University Singers and the NYU Choral Arts Society, and is on
the teaching faculty of Mannes College, where he teaches music theory.
Soloists for the concert are soprano Jennifer Greene, tenor Alok Kumar, and baritone Andrew Cummings.
