Queens College Choral Society Holds Auditions


-- Members Will Perform Brahms’ Requiem and the World Premiere

of a New Work Commissioned by the Queens Symphony Orchestra --

FLUSHING, N.Y., January 12, 2012 –The Queens College Choral Society is holding auditions for its spring 2012 performances of Brahms’ Requiem on May 19, as well as the world premiere of 1001 Voices: A Symphony for Queens on April 29. From its founding in 1941, the Choral Society has offered students and faculty of the college, along with residents of the metropolitan area, the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterpieces from all musical eras. The society welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds and is open to anyone with prior singing experience. 

Auditions for new members will take place on three Wednesdays--January 18, 25 and February 1--from 6:00 – 7:15 pm in Room 246 of the college’s Music Building. Rehearsals will be held on Wednesdays from 7:30 – 9:45 pm in Room 270. 

One of the most beloved masterworks of all time, Requiem will be performed with soloists and orchestra from QC’s Aaron Copland School of Music.  1001 Voices, which tells the story of the immigrant experience in the borough through orchestra, actors, singers, dancers and multi-media projections, will be presented with the Queens Symphony Orchestra (QSO).  QSO commissioned the new work, which was composed by David London with text by Judith Sloan. Both performances will take place in the Colden Auditorium
