Time's Arrow: A Creative Home

A Creative Home: Music written and performed by Musicians of Trinity

The opening of the Time's Arrow Festival will include two concerts on January 2nd, featuring music by composers who have worked and performed at Trinity Wall Street and Saint Paul's Chapel. While the majority of the music performed at Trinity is sacred music for choir, organ, and orchestra, Trinity's musicians represent a wealth of experience in other fields. The two concerts will focus on the intimate art song genre, and feature music by Trinity composers from 1990 to the present, including Doug Balliett, James Blachly, Caleb Burhans, Owen Burdick, Chris DeBlasio, Eric Dudley, Caroline Shaw, Julian Wachner, and Jonathan Woody.

All events are free of charge and held at St. Paul’s Chapel unless otherwise indicated

Trinity’s annual festival of January concerts, Time’s Arrow, which exemplifies Trinity’s signature juxtaposition of early and modern music, is a highlight of New York’s musical season. This year’s Time’s Arrow program celebrates the 250th anniversary of the opening of St. Paul’s Chapel. Completed on October 30, 1766, St. Paul’s is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan. Works will range from those foundational to American music to world premieres and commissions from leading American composers.
