New York Choral Society Summer Sings
Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space
Brahms A German Requiem
David Hayes, Conductor
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.
Brahms A German Requiem demands excessive quantities of passion and drama, angst and sweetness, and power and intimacy. In a letter to Brahms, Clara Schumann wrote, "It is a truly tremendous piece of art which moves the entire being in a way little else does."
