This years programming kicks off on the evening of Saturday, December 14th, at St. Mary our Mother Church in Horseheads with The Festival of the Inn – We Celebrate Christmas with the music of Dave Brubeck. The program features Brubeck's "La Fiesta de la Posada" and "Christmas Jubilation" by our own Jose Gomez. The season continues on the evening of Saturday, March 1 with a program that like a good wedding features something old and something new. Cantata Singers Celebration: Fifty Years of Concerts and Commissions is a program built around commissions from anniversary years of the past and a brand new piece by our own "composer in residence" and music director, will wickham. The text for the piece was created by the ladies of "ARTiculations" keeping the entire creation of this new celebratory work entirely within Chemung County. Our season will conclude in grand style on Sunday, June 1st with a gala performance of the incomparable Mass in B minor by JS Bach accompanied by full orchestra. We also hope to be joined by former Cantata Singers from far and wide as we conclude our golden anniversary season in high style!
