Many thanks to those who made our Spring Concert such a success, we had a large and enthusiastic audience, and it was a wonderful afternoon on all counts. Here are a few excerpts, if you’d like to see what it was like:

Kyrie        Cum Sancto Spiritu        Agnus Dei

We are making plans for our upcoming season, and we’re pleased to announce that Marc Winer will be our interim director in the fall, and Paige Graham will be our interim director in the spring. Rehearsals for the fall season begin on Tuesday, September 12, at South South Church, 1066 South East Street in Amherst at 7:15pm.

Marc has chosen the following pieces for our fall concert, all drawn from the English choral tradition:

Rejoice in the Lamb, Benjamin Britten

Te Deum laudamus (in F), John Ireland
Like as the Hart Desireth the Waterbrooks, Herbert Howells
Magnificat – (Collegium Regale service), Herbert Howells
