On Wednesday, February 3 at 10:45 AM, HUC is hosting the 2nd Annual HUC Composers Showcase. This concert will feature original compositions by current students and faculty, for use in both congregational and concert settings. These new works combine the composers' musical talents with their knowledge of our texts and liturgy, honoring our musical heritage while expanding the canon of worship music.
The concert will be approximately one hour long, and will take place in the Minnie Petrie Chapel at HUC New York, 1 West Fourth Street. We hope you will show your support for the next generation of composers and songwriters of the Reform movement!
