The piece will be sung entirely a cappella and performed outdoors in the north east corner of Central Park.
The performance is free and open to the public. Further performance details will be posted on this page closer to the performance date.
In the event of rain, the performance will take place on August 11 at 3pm at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
