Queens College Choral Society Will Hold Auditions for Spring Concert Season

-- Members Will Perform Mendelssohn’s Elijah on May 17 --

FLUSHING, NY, January 14, 2014 – The Queens College Choral Society seeks new members for its spring 2014 concert season, which will feature the performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah on Saturday, May 17. One of the most beloved oratorios of all time—musically inspiring, spiritually uplifting, and a joy to sing—Elijah will be performed at 7:30 pm in Colden Auditorium.

Auditions for new members will take place on the following Wednesdays in Room 246 of the Queens College Music Building:  

January 22, 6:00-7:15 pm
January 29, 6:00-7:15 pm
February 5, 6:00-7:15 pm

Auditions consist of basic singing skills—no preparation is necessary.

From its founding in 1941, the Choral Society has offered QC students and faculty—and other music lovers from Queens, Manhattan, and Nassau/Suffolk counties—the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterpieces. The society welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds and is open to anyone with prior singing experience.
