Carnegie Hall, New York City

June 12-15, 2025

This performance venue has been a destination for choirs all over the world for decades – and it’s time to add our names to its storied history. Why now? The quick backstory… Last fall, Prince of Peace hosted the first ever Reconcile Concert with over 150 singers. The experience was powerful…so powerful that we are joining with new partners on May 18, 2024 to do the second annual Reconcile Concert.

In 2025, we plan to take this concert on the road to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall. During this performance, we will deliver a message focused on the ongoing work of reconciliation – coming together to provide a message of love, kindness and acceptance. I think we all recognize how our communities are fracturing; relationships in our neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, churches and even our homes are buckling under the weight of polarization, misunderstanding, and mistrust. Reconcile is our response.

Our program will be a full 40-minutes, and is designed to be an immersive experience for the audience ( and singers!) — powerful choral works, massive video projection, spoken word and narration. We are featuring several works from composer Kyle Pederson including a possible world premiere of a brand new composition.

We would like you to join us for this opportunity of a lifetime! To bring Reconcile to Carnegie Hall, we require the participation of at least 150 singers (high school age and above). Review the trip details below to determine if this opportunity is a fit for you.

June 12-15, 2025  (fly out Thursday morning and back Sunday morning… though you can certainly extend your stay on either side if you desire).
