Queens College Choral Society Rings in the Holidays with Handel's Messiah

 -- Annual Winter Concert --

FLUSHING, NY, December 5, 2014—The Queens College Choral Society, accompanied by a full orchestra, will perform Handel’s beloved Messiah on Saturday, December 13, at 7:30 pm in Colden Auditorium. We are pleased to offer this perennial favorite, which has played an important part in the history of the choral society. James John, associate professor and music director of the QCCS, will conduct, and soprano Sachie Ueshima, mezzo-soprano Katherine Liu, countertenor Masafumi Toyoda, tenor Gilad Paz, and baritone Rod Gomez will perform the vocal solos.
 
The choral society is a singing organization of and for the public, and the students and staff of Queens College. A treasure in the borough, QCCS is unique in the diversity of its singers, who range from students recruited through the high school outreach program, to men and women who have performed with the group for over 40 years. Two times a year—typically in December and May—the society, backed by an orchestra, performs concerts devoted to the great masterpieces of choral literature, such as Brahms’s Requiem, Bach’s Mass in B Minor, and Mendelssohn’s Elijah. The QCCS has also presented multiple premieres of new works, including pieces composed by faculty members of Queens College’s Aaron Copland School of Music.
 
Tickets are $20 and are available through the Kupferberg Center Box office at (718) 793-8080 or online at www.kupferbergcenter.org. Group discounts for high school students and teachers are also available. To take advantage of this offer, visit www.qcchoralsociety.org.
