When was the last time you sang in public? Are you a choral music buff but don't have time to belong to a chorus? Join others in raising the roof with song. Blow away your vocal cobwebs and experience the great fun and satisfaction of singing as part of a group.
Keep your passion for singing alive by joining the New York Choral Society for its 52nd annual celebration of summer. It's easy: we lend you the scores for the evening, provide accompaniment and soloists in the comfortable air-conditioned surroundings at Peter Norton Symphony Space Leonard Nimoy Thalia, and YOU are the chorus.
Mozart's Requiem is one of the most popular and beloved works in the choral repertoire. Composed in the last year of Mozart's life, the Requiem contains all the power for which the composer is famous in its vision of the finality of death. His musical legacy-and particularly his Requiem-has brought outstanding beauty and richness to Western culture as few other composers' have.
Britten's Rejoice in the Lamb is a chaotic, brilliant and festive catalog of the variety of ways in which all living things worship and praise God.
