    Our Local Choir Is Performing in NYC!

    I thought I'd post the splash screen for the local choir I have sung with and post music performed by the local South Shore Chamber Orchestra who also perform with the choir. I hope to do more performing in the future as I'm on the cusp of more than semi-retirement.

    The choir will be anchoring the annual Handel's Messiah concert at the NYC Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall on Sunday the 25th of November.

    Maybe a forum member from the NYC area will be able to attend.

    That's exciting, Phil...congrats. Hope the following doesn't hit you...

    BAD LUCK STORY: My wife recently auditioned for the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and made it.
    She was thrilled to be able to sing with the group that works with the Indianapolis
    Symphony.
    The big event was to be the Brahms Requiem in Early November...about 3 weeks from now or so.
    Wellll....the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is in a huge labor dispute and the orchestra was
    locked out. No performances in October, and November...including the Brahms...is very doubtful.
    So probably no Brahms Requiem!

    Wow, I bet your wife is bummed out! She made it to the major leagues.

    Our local choir was discovered by YouTube posts and got the invite to NYC. It's sort of a cinderella story as about half of the choir members don't read music. When I performed with them at the high school auditorium, sometimes there were more people on the stage than in the audience here in the sticks so the invite was quite a surprise. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that things go smoothly for them.

    I'm sure the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's labor dispute will be eventually resolved and you'll be there in the audience proudly watching her perform.

    On a more positive note--your group's story is a testament to two things:
    1. the quality of the group, and
    2. The power of the internet.

    The invite came because the group is up to the task!!

    Having grown up in NYC, I envy you...I haven't been back since 1995.

    Update:

    The local Annas Bay choir is also going to perform a short set at the Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular featuring the Rockets.
