Hudson Chorale, Westchester’s largest chorus, will conclude its 7th season on June 2 at 8:00 pm and June 4 at 4:00 pm, 2017 with a concert program entitled Requiem, featuring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved and timeless Requiem, along with a collection of pieces that illustrate the different ways in which composers of different musical styles, eras and cultures have used the universal language of music to express the vast range of emotions associated with death, loss and mourning, to include Henry Purcell’s masterful Funeral Music for Queen Mary, choral gems by Johannes Brahms, Antonio Lotti, and American-born William Schuman, as well as a selection of Negro Spirituals. Complete with outstanding professional soloists and a full orchestra, both performances will be at the St. John the Evangelist Church, 148 Hamilton Avenue, White Plains, NY.

He currently serves as Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York. The chorus has assembled an outstanding professional ensemble of guest soloists and instrumentalists that will guarantee outstanding performances of this collection of choral works.
