Christopher North will make his Carnegie Hall conducting debut with the ACMA (Association of Classical Musicians and Artists) Orchestra on Saturday, November 18th, at 8 pm. As the Principal Conductor, North will lead the enthusiastic 22-piece volunteer chamber orchestra in Weill Recital Hall performance of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto (featuring Gary Mayer as soloist) and the world premiere of his own composition, "(on the) Verge Of," a fantasia on a theme dedicated 'for Lorna.' Dr. Lorna Breen, an emergency room physician and cellist, was known to North through their association with the New York Late Starters Orchestra. North, also a singer and multi-instrumentalist, has graced the Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium multiple times since Fall 1997, performing as a vocalist with the Russian Chamber Chorus of NY, the New York Choral Artists (NY Phil and Chicago Phil), American Symphony Orchestra, among others. He has also showcased his talent as a bassist with countless MidAmerica Productions (including Messiah, works by John Rutter) and the Young People's Chorus of NYC, among others. Additionally, he has performed as a solo singer/guitarist, opening for the Ft. Worth Symphony in a Children's Holiday Concert featuring John Lithgow.
