Musica Viva NY presents a second installment of Voices in Motion, continuing its exploration of sound and space. The program pairs inspiring choral works – including  Antonin Dvořák’s Goin’ Home (arranged by William Arms Fisher), part of the New York Philharmonic’s 175th Anniversary New World Initiative –  with fascinating organ works that showcase the many sonic colors of the Holtkamp pipe organ. All Souls’ historic sanctuary is used in dynamic ways as the choir moves throughout the space during the program in varying configurations.
