FLUSHING, N.Y., January 23, 2012 –The Queens College Choir of the Aaron Copland School of Music under the direction of Professor James John will perform a free public concert on Feb. 8 at 12:15 pm in LeFrak Hall as a prelude to their East Coast tour the following week. The choir will perform a program of well-known works by Victoria, Brahms, Rautavaara and Penderecki at Old South Church in Boston and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art in Providence.  The Feb. 8 QC concert will be longer and also feature pieces by ACSM Professors Joel Mandelbaum and Bruce Saylor, as well as solo and piano works showcasing the talent of individual choir members.
