At the end of April, Director of Visual & Performing Arts Matthew Neylon stepped off of a plane in New York City and stepped in to one of the city’s most historical landmarks, Carnegie Hall.
There with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Mr. Neylon would perform “The Brahms Requiem” and a new commission, “Zohar,” to celebrate the 100th birthday of esteemed Atlanta Conductor, Robert Shaw.
Mr. Neylon reflects on his experience, “It was my first time at Carnegie Hall and was a wonderful moment to perform in a hall with such an incredible 125 year legacy.”
Read the performance review in The New York Times.
