* Oratorio Society of New York to premiere Ranjbaran's "We Are One" for Chorus and Orchestra at Carnegie Hall

Kent Trittle and Oratorio Society of New York premiere Ranjbaran’s We Are One for chorus and orchestra on May 7, 2018 at Carnegie Hall.  We Are One is a work with the message of peace, racial and social harmony, tolerance, and social justice. It was commissioned by Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

The text for We Are One is comprised of 5 sections, each in a different language: Spanish, Persian, Hebrew, Arabic, and English. Each portion of the text is sung in its original language. The vocal parts are written so that community choruses are able to sing along with professional choirs, making it accessible to a variety of performers.   For the English part, Ranjbaran has used the text of “we shall overcome”, ending with “we shall live in peace”. The word peace is repeated in 20 languages representing more than 80 countries.
