Our 25th Season will be Memorable
Great new music! Fall Gala Concert!!
Holiday Pops with the NEPA Philharmonic!!!
Two (!) Spring Pocket Concerts!!!!
& Our Search for a new Artistic Director!!!!!
While we are still basking in the powerful emotions and warm feelings of music and community born of our spring 2023 performances of CONSIDERING MATTHEW SHEPARD, we move forward with great excitement into 2023-2024, our 25th anniversary season.
We will begin on November 5th with a Gala Anniversary Concert showcasing Johannes Brahms, Joseph Haydn, Daniel Pinkham and Alice Parker in music of LOVE & MARRIAGE, followed by the latest installment in our multi-decade collaboration with the Northeast Pennsylvania Philharmonic and their beloved Holiday Pops Concerts. There, we’ll take to stages of the Scranton Cultural Center and F.M. Kirby Center with the orchestra and Maestra Melisse Brunet for music of John Rutter, Eric Whitacre, Rosephanye Powell, Randol Alan Bass and more, including Fred Waring’s classic “Night Before Christmas.” We have the best seats in the house to see the orchestra, Melisse, and the Ballet Theatre of Scranton and they’re free!
Spring 2024 will feature two special “pocket concerts” led by guest conductors selected from our fall search for a new Artistic Director, culminating in our end-of-season announcement of the Society’s new musical leadership as we embark on a second quarter-century of the best music and music-making.
As always, our chorus is open without audition to all interested singers age high-school and older. Members purchase and retain their own copies of the music and can participate tuition-free for their first semester of singing. Thereafter they pay modest semester tuition to help us provide professional section singers and accompanists for all rehearsals and performances. We meet on Monday evening’s from 6:30-9:00 pm at Langcliffe Presybterian Church on Main Street in Avoca, just a short drive away from I-81.
Look to the tabs above to learn more about us, hear us sing, see the rehearsal/performance schedule, meet our professional section singers, accompanist, and conductor, and read about our Artistic Director search.
Thanks for visiting The Choral Society of Northeast Pennsylvania!
Alan Baker, artistic director
