BYU Singers: Live at Carnegie Hall

BYU Singers were very pleased to present their debut concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City on June 8, 1999. This concert came as the culmination of a tour that had already included a successful month performing in England, Israel and Jordan. KBYU-FM was present to record it, and offer this CD as a record of the evening’s fine performance.

Of the performance, the Vice Consul General of China wrote: “It was a fantastic evening—I was deeply impressed by the excellent performance. I consider it a spiritual journey as well as artful enjoyment.” A professional musician in the audience wrote: “The BYU Singers concert in Carnegie Hall was very impressive both in the musical variety and quality of singing. Their musicianship and ensemble were impeccable, and are the equal of any fully professional choir I have heard.”
