Dr. Paul Plew Invited to Conduct in New York City's Lincoln Center
Distinguished Concerts International in New York City (CDINY) announced today that Dr. Paul Plew and The Master's College Chorale & Alumni have been invited to participate in a matinee performance of John Rutter's "Requiem" on Sunday, May 29, 2011, in Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall. Members of the choir will join with other outstanding choristers to form the Distinguished Concerts Singers International, a choir of distinction, accompanied by Distinguished Concerts Orchestra International. Dr. Plew will be the guest conductor for the performance as well as serve as the clinician for the residency.

Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY states: "The Master's College Chorale & Alumni received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers. It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York City. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and is deserving of the community's recognition and support."

"The singers will spend approximately 9-10 hours in rehearsals over a 4 to 5 day residency." says Griffith. "Not all of the time is spent in rehearsals, since there is so much history and culture to see in New York City. However, the performance in Lincoln Center is the primary purpose for their visit to the city." Members of the community are encouraged to give financial support in sending these singers to Lincoln Center by contacting Dr. Paul Plew at 661.362.2256 or via email, pplew@masters.edu.
