KHORIKOS is pleased to present a new work by Norway-based composer Andrew Smith, a set of O Antiphons written for KHORIKOS.

Bach's funeral motet, "Komm, Jesu, Komm," with David Karp on synth continuo.

This program is a part of KHORIKOS’ Old New, Uptown Downtown series, sponsored by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, which aims to bring KHORIKOS’ unique blend of Early and New music to the communities of both uptown and downtown Manhattan, and to forge connections between these neighborhoods and cultural contexts through music. If you can't make this one, join us on night two on Saturday, December 14th, downtown at The Shrine Church of St. Anthony of Padua.

Tickets will be available at the door. Tickets are $20 suggested donation.
