Grace Chorale of Brooklyn (Jason Asbury, Music Director), in collaboration with Vertical Player Repertory (Judith Barnes, Artistic Director), presents the in-person premiere of The Constitution, a Secular Oratorio by Benjamin Yarmolinsky, a musical performance of our nation's foundational document, accompanied by a chamber orchestra. Aside from the Declaration of Independence, no text epitomizes American ideals as much as the Constitution. Acknowledging the Constitution's embodiment of 18th century values and language, the composer Ben Yarmolinsky has chosen a corresponding 18th century musical style, the Handelian oratorio, as the model for his setting of The Constitution. The work comprises choruses, arias, and recitatives, similar to The Messiah, but with a recognizably American sound that combines jazz rhythms, blues, folk, gospel, as well as Handelian flourishes to give voice to the Constitution's words in a clear, vigorous, and highly singable style. People might leave the performances humming an amendment or two!
