"Songs of Solomon, a group composed of students from various New York high schools, appeared last, happily, for it would have been an impossible act to follow. Conducted by Chantel Wright, it sustained attention through “Jesus Is King,” an initially fascinating but ultimately overlong gloss on Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus by Glenn Edward Burleigh. But it positively brought the house down in William L. Dawson’s “Ezekiel Saw de Wheel”: an earlier spring before Tippett’s winter."

The New York Times


"As musical ambassadors, Songs of Solomon, Inc. gives a sense of pride and ownership to the Harlem and global community while providing a safe haven for youth of diverse, spiritual, artistic, and social experience."
