Hudson Chorale (Rehearsals in Pleasantville, NY) Welcomes New Members in September in Preparation for an Exciting 2018-2019 Season

Pleasantville, NY (August 2018)

Come sing with Westchester’s highly acclaimed community chorus, Hudson Chorale. The group is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) to join them for an exciting concert season that will appeal to choral singers of a wide range of musical preferences. Singer-friendly auditions will begin on Monday, September 10, 2018, by appointment, from 6:00 – 7:00 pm prior to the first rehearsal.  Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7:15 – 9:45 p.m. at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church, 400 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville, NY.  To receive additional information and/or to schedule a time for an audition, contact Jeanne Wygant at JeanneWygant@optonline.net or call 914-478-0074.

 

Hudson Chorale selects its programs from a wide range of choral styles, from great oratorios to gospel.  Unlike their last concert, which featured all 20th century contemporary American composers, the 2018-2019 season will highlight 19th and 20th century iconic composers from Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia.

 

The first concert program will take place on January 26 & 27, 2019 at the magnificent Chapel at Maryknoll.  The highlight will be Gabriel Fauré’s exquisite Requiem in its original chamber orchestra version, along with a collection of motets by Felix Mendelssohn, Anton Bruckner and Johannes Brahms.  The second half of the season culminates on May 17 & 19, 2019, with performances of Igor Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, Bela Bartok’s Four Slavic Folk Songs, and Johannes Brahms’ Quartet Op. 92 and Liebeslieder Waltzes.

 

Music Director Maestro Ira Spaulding, is a choral conductor, singer and master class instructor whose career spans 40 years of performance in more than 60 countries.  He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer, teacher and conductor.  The chorus’ Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord.
