Eric Stark conducting Butler’s annual Rejoice! concerts, which this year will take place on December 9 and 10 in Clowes Memorial Hall.

Professor of Music Eric Stark will conduct the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, October 16, in a performance that will include New York composer Mohammed Fairouz’s new oratorio, Zabur, which the choir commissioned.

Stark, who is Butler’s Director of Choral Activities and also serves as the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir’s Artistic Director, told New York’s Downtown magazine, that conducting in New York “feels like going to the musical version of Mount Olympus.”

“Our musical gods lived, worked, performed and made history in New York,” he said. “The world knows the United States through New York City. It’s a platform for music making that serves a universal audience.”
