MasterVoices | Orchestra of St. Luke's | Ted Sperling, Conductor

The Road of Promise tells the story of a young boy who knows nothing of his Jewish heritage, but finds himself at a synagogue under threat of persecution. As all await their fate, the Rabbi brings stories from the Old Testament to life, enlightening the boy, who emerges as a new hope for his people. Tony Award-winning conductor/director Ted Sperling leads a cast of world-renowned soloists and a 200-voice chorus and symphony orchestra through Kurt Weill’s magnificent musical score.

This concert is dedicated to the memory of Charles I. Petschek, a longtime and cherished friend of The Chorale.
