Hampshire Choral Society 62nd Season
On May 17th, at 3:00 pm, the Hampshire Choral Society will present a special concert: the first area performance of the first major choral work written by an American composer, John Knowles Paine’s Mass in D. This wonderful and exciting work has lain in obscurity for years, hardly ever performed due to the lack of accurate and legible performing materials. Now available in a scholarly modern edition, the Hampshire Choral Society is pleased to be able to bring this masterpiece back to life for area music lovers.
If you are a singer (especially a tenor or bass) with past choral experience, consider joining us. Simple (and stress-free) auditions will be held in January. We promise you’ll love both the singing and the camaraderie.
