Greetings, Music Lovers! Our Christmas Celebration concert with Choir and Brass was a huge success! Audiences enjoyed Daniel Pinkham's Christmas Cantata, as well as lovely anthems and carols arranged by Canadian Brass composers, and a carol sing-along, accompanied by the talented Timberdale Brass. We are excited to announce that our spring concert will comprise the exquisite Requiem of Maurice Duruflé, as well as Randall Thompson's Frostiana, a delightful setting of seven poems of Robert Frost. The Philadelphia Girls Choir and Musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Friends will join us for this performance. Our mezzo soloist will be Anne Marie Stanley, a Grand Finals Winner of the 2022 Metropolitan Opera Laffont Competition. Anne Marie also recently performed the title role in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia at the Royal Opera House. Slated for 3PM on May 21 at St. David's Episcopal Church in Wayne, PA, this concert must not be missed!
We are intentionally philanthropic in our philosophy - our goals include serving those less fortunate in our community. As such, we collect non-perishable food items at our concerts that will supply local food banks. In December we enjoyed providing a carol singing event for inmates at Camden County Correctional Facility, and plan to continue this and other such practices at the holiday season. When feasible, we will be presenting informal concerts for local nursing homes or retirement communities. We welcome any ideas for other beneficiaries of our time and talents, to make our world a little brighter.
We welcome new singers! Go to "Join Us" page to find an audition form.
