Dvořák's Stabat Mater

May 13, at 8 pm, Carnegie Hall, 881 Seventh Avenue at 57th St., For tickets call (718) 258-5468.

The Oratorio Society of New York, joined by members of the Brno Academic Chorus performs Stabat Mater by Antonín Dvořák. The performance is organized by Friends of Czech Greenways (FCG).


Stabat Mater is one of the glories of 19th-century choral music. It derives from a Medieval Latin poem describing Mary's grief over her son's crucifixion. The work was first performed in Prague in 1880.


The Oratorio Society of New York has been an essential part of New York City's cultural fabric since its founding in 1873 by Leopold Damrosch.  The Society is the city's second oldest cultural organization.  It is the chorus for which Carnegie Hall was built and has been awarded the Handel Medallion, New York City’s highest cultural award.

The Brno Academic Chorus (B.A.C.) "Old-Timers" are part of a 40-year tradition of quality performance at a high artistic level. This group of former B.A.C. members reunited in 2002 to celebrate the 60th birthday of their beloved chorus master, Lubomir Mátl. In doing so, they rediscovered a glint of the old magic that had helped them win a number of international competitions.

Friends of Czech Greenways is a non-profit organization based in New York, promoting the Czech Greenways Program for sustainable development and preservation of cultural and natural heritage in the Czech Republic through cultural exchanges and low-impact community-based tourism.
