Barihunk John Chest, who represented the United States at this year's BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, will join soprano Susanna Phillips with the Oratorio Society of New York for a program of two masterpieces of choral music by Brahms. The November 6th concert will kick off the Oratorio Society's 2017-18 season at Carnegie Hall. Tickets are available online.

The program will include the composer's Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) and his Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem). The Oratorio Society performed the American premiere of Ein deutsches Requiem in 1877, eight years after its premiere in Cologne, Germany.

John Chest wraps up a run as Guglielmo in Mozart's Così fan tutte at the Bayerische Staatsoper on October 6th.

Barihunks Jason Duika and Zacharias Niedzwiecki
