Countertenor Daniel Moody to be featured at Christ Church Riverdale
Sun, January 27, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:20 pm
Acclaimed countertenor Daniel Moody will be featured at Christ Church Riverdale, (5040 Henry Hudson Parkway at 252nd Street, Bronx, NY), at its Sunday service on January 27th at 11:00AM. Mr. Moody has garnered widespread acclaim for his commanding yet expressive vocal timbre and his breathtaking musicianship. Praised as having a “vocal resonance which makes a profoundly startling impression” (The New York Times) and for his “vivid and powerful” voice (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), Mr. Moody is equally known for his “sweet and melancholy sound” (The Washington Post) and ability to “pierce hearts” and “utterly silence a room” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer) with his expressivity and connection with audiences.
During the service, Daniel will perform three solos (Handel, Caccini and Scarlatti), and will be featured with the Christ Church Riverdale Choir & Schola Cantorum for two selections from Vivaldi’s “Gloria.”
2018 and 2019 mark Mr. Moody’s Carnegie Hall Debut with the Oratorio Society of New York and with Musica Sacra. Among his many noteworthy performances he will also appear with the Atlanta Symphony as soloist in Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms” and with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra in a duet concert with famed mezzo-soprano Anne Sophie von Otter.
