The international cast that Frühbeck assembled for these performances features American sopranos Erin Morley and Emalie Savoy; American tenor Nicholas Phan; South African baritone Jacques Imbrailo; the Spanish chorus Orpheón Pamplonés, directed by Igor Ijurra Fernández; and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, directed by Dianne Berkun Menaker.
