St. Malachy's – The Actors' Chapel will present The Voices United Choral Festival, a "musical extravaganza" benefit, Nov. 12 at New York City's Beacon Theatre. Linda Eder will be among the evening's performers.
The 7:30 PM concert, hosted by author Raymond Arroyo, will feature over 600 performers under the direction of conductor Eric Knapp and include a special performance from Ryan Silverman (Cry-Baby, The Phantom of the Opera).
Audiences can expect to hear Caldwell Ivory's "Hope for Resolution" and performers from tri-state area choirs such as The Choir at St. Malachy's, Connecticut Choral Society and New Jersey Choral Society, among others.
Additionally, the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal will be honored with the Father George Moore Religious Leader Awar, and David Higgs will receive The Paul Creston Award.
Voices United will benefit the outreach ministries of The Actors' Chapel as well as charities such as Covenant House New York.
Eder, who won a Theatre World Award for her performance in Jekyll & Hyde, also appeared on Broadway in her concerts Linda Eder at the Gershwin and Linda Eder: The Holiday Concert.
