MasterVoices concludes its 2021-22 season celebrating its 80th anniversary on Wednesday, June 8 with Songs for a Summer Night, a free outdoor performance at the new Waterline Square Park on the Upper West Side. The concert features several new arrangements demonstrating how the sounds of summer delight and inspire. Artistic Director Ted Sperling leads the MasterVoices Chorus and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s with guests, soprano Shereen Pimentel, who played Maria in the recent Broadway revival of West Side Story, and composer and tenor Tariq Al-Sabir. Drawing from composers from the Renaissance to the present day, the program includes the world premiere of Summers Are Growing Longer, a new work by Mr. Al-Sabir, commissioned by MasterVoices.
