Queens College Choral Society Invites New Members to Join for the 75th Anniversay Season

FLUSHING, NY, August 21, 2015 – The Queens College Choral Society is seeking new members for its 75th anniversary season, which will feature three outstanding masterworks:  Vivaldi’s Gloria, Bach’s Magnificat, and Verdi’s Requiem.

The Choral Society is a friendly and diverse community of singers that welcomes people of all ages with prior singing experience. Auditions for new members will take place on the following Wednesdays in Room 246 of the Music Building at Queens College:  

August 26, 6–8:30 pm
September 2 and September 9, 6–7:15 pm

Rehearsals, which are held from 7:30 to 9:45 pm on Wednesdays at Queens College, will begin on September 2. Auditions consist of basic singing skills—no preparation is necessary.

Bach’s Magnificat and Vivaldi’s Gloria combine the uplifting dance rhythms of the Baroque with wonderful dramatic intensity. The Vivaldi occupies a special place in QC Choral Society history: the group gave the American premiere in 1949. Verdi’s magnificent Requiem, a work that hardly needs any introduction, is one of the most powerful pieces ever written. This trio of masterworks will surely make for a splendid and unforgettable 75th concert season!Choral Society 2015.jpg

From its founding in 1941, the Queens College Choral Society has offered Queens College students, faculty, and staff—and other music lovers from Queens, Manhattan, and Nassau/Suffolk Counties—the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterpieces.
