Our 50th anniversary performance season is off to an amazing start with "The Festival of the Inn" featuring "La Fiesta de la Posada" by Dave Brubeck. With help from the Dan Paul trio and the Youth and Children's choirs of the Church of St. Mary Our Mother, the church was rockin'! A large and very appreciative audience braved our first big snow of the winter to help us launch what looks to be a great anniversary season. Thanks so much to one and all, and particularly to the singers who worked so hard to achieve such a great performance!
The Cantata Singers 2013-2014 Anniversary Season - Celebrating Five Decades of Choral Music in the Southern Tier
The season continues on the evening of Saturday, March 1, at 7:30 pm 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!
