Reflections of Life

Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) presents an evening of choral music celebrating the continuous cycle of life and renewal, including world premieres by James Eakin and Greg Gilpin, on February 20th at Carnegie Hall. Special guest Clay Aiken will bring his unique presence and vibrancy to host the second half of the concert, narrating several works by award-winning choral composer and arranger Gilpin, who will also conduct. The concert, says Gilpin, is a “vessel in which all generations may join in music, tying together each person’s journey in life.” Since coming to national attention on the second season of American Idol in 2003, Aiken has sold more than six million albums, written a New York Times bestselling memoir, produced and hosted television programs, and starred on Broadway. He joins the cast of this year’s Celebrity Apprentice, premiering on February 19th on NBC.
