From our friends at the Riverdale Choral Society:
The Riverdale Choral Society invites singers of all levels to join us for rehearsals for our autumn season.
Open rehearsals will be held on two Wednesdays, September 7 and September 14, at 7:00 p.m. We welcome all voice ranges: soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. Rehearsals will be conducted by Music Director John Lettieri. New singers will be asked to take part in a brief informal audition.
Singers who join the Choral Society will be preparing for a concert on Sunday, December 4, at which we will perform Carols and Lullabies, Christmas in the Southwest by Conrad Susa and A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten. The concert will offer the audience an opportunity to hear beautiful music right here in the Riverdale area of the Bronx.
The autumn season rehearsals and concert will take place at Christ Church Riverdale, West 252nd St. and Henry Hudson Parkway East, where there is on-street parking and easy access to public transportation.
Since 1964, the Riverdale Choral Society has been bringing joy to the community through performances of high-quality choral music. Our welcoming, diverse group of singers rehearses weekly under professional artistic direction, singing both traditional and contemporary repertoire. Through live concerts and community outreach, the chorus enriches the cultural life of the greater Riverdale area.
If you love to sing and can read music (you don’t have to be able to sight read if you have a good musical ear), please consider joining us. Rehearsals will be held every Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:15 p.m.
