New York Gay Men's Chorus' Four Choirs and a Cathedral at St. John the Divine was, appropriately, a divine experience for ECMC. One of the 900 audience members (!!!!) already posted this video of snippets from the concert. The very first piece you hear is the four combined choirs singing Eric Whitacre's Lux Aurumque as conducted by ECMC Artistic Director Matt Oltman.
