Huntington Choral Society announces Spring Concert

April 9, 2018 by  

The Huntington Choral Society has announced its Spring Concert, perhaps in the hope spring will finally arrive.

The ensemble plans to perform the ‘Paukenmesse’ (‘Mass in Time of War’) by Franz Joseph Haydn, and the ‘Requiem’ by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, accompanied by the full orchestra.

The Choral Society was formed in 1962, and is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the world’s great choral music to Long Island. The chorus is comprised of 100 singers, and has been accompanied by noted musicians from throughout the area, including the Opera Orchestra of New York and the Long Island Symphony. The group has sung in Carnegie Hall, and at Hofstra University, and performs works from the Baroque age, as well as those from the Classical, Romantic, and Modern eras.

Some of the works performed include Verdi’s Requiem, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, the Messiah by Handel, and the St. Matthew Passion by Bach.

The concert is scheduled for this Saturday, April 14, beginning at 8:00 pm. The performance will be given at Huntington High School. Tickets are $20 for adults, or $21 if ordered online. They are also available at the door, where purchasers are asked to use cash. Students are admitted free with a current ID.

Events like this offer a great experience, which organizers can enhance by working with a flyer printing company to create a program for the evening.
