The Children’s Chorus of San Antonio took 22 young singers to New York City Thursday morning for a performance at Carnegie Hall on June 12.

The choir will perform at the Isaac Stern Auditorium on the Ronald O. Perelman Stage alongside 11 other choral groups from around the world at 2 p.m.

The concert, Eternal Light, is produced by the Distinguished Concerts International New York and will feature the world premiere of Nocturnos y Adivinanzas by composer Cristian Grases, which was commissioned specifically for the concert. In addition, the men of the group will perform Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna.

“This particular trip and performance is special because it’s not the usual children’s chorus variety,” said Children’s Chorus of San Antonio Executive Director Anne Schelleng. “It’s a significant piece of work and they get to give the first performance of it. You don’t get to do that very often.”
