The Manhattan Symphonie was founded in 2005 by its distinguished conductor, Gregory Singer. This unique orchestra is internationally acclaimed for its inspired concerts in honor of humanitarian causes. They toured China in 2009, giving sold-out performances to celebrate 30 years of improved US relations. Known for their innovative programming, they have played in a wide variety of settings, always generating special enthusiasm through their use of artistic communication for positive social change. Mr. Singer, who was trained at NYC’s world-famous Juilliard School, has been guest conductor of the New Jersey Philharmonic, and has given concerts at Carnegie Hall and many other important venues.
The Dvorak “New World Symphony” stands for the spirit of New York and of US inclusiveness, opportunity, hope and compassion – in stark contrast to 9/11 and its attacks on those very values.
