|WCS Holiday Concert Captures the Spirit of the Season|
Concertgoers attending the WCS Holiday Concert were treated to an amazing afternoon of choral music highlighted by a powerful rendition of Bach’s Cantata 61: Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland. Adding their special touch to it were Soprano Emily Misch, Tenor Daniel Neer and Bass Justin Beck.
Misch’s soaring voice also captivated the audience with Schubert’s Schafers Klagelied and Ganymed. The chorus rounded out the holiday spirit with the classic Alleluia
As chorus members interspersed with attendees, Conductor Frank Nemhauser brought the concert to a close by inviting audience members to join the chorus in a sing-along. They readily accepted and cheerfully participated by singing the traditional classics: Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls and White Christmas.
WCS’ next major event will be the celebration of its 75th anniversary at its Spring Concert on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at White Plains Presbyterian Church when it will perform Carl Orff's Carmina Burana.View Newsletter
Choral Society Spring Concert Packs the House
|The June concert was a terrific affair with selections including Dvorak’s Mass in D Major and Romance in F Minor as well as rousing songs from American gospel and spiritual roots. Under the direction of long-time conductor Frank Nemhauser, and accompanist David Baranowski, the packed audience was treated to a special feature with violinist Hojin Kim, who has performed with the Busan Philharmonic Orchestra in her native South Korea and several New York venues including Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall and the Neue Galerie as a chamber musician. Kim also has served as concertmaster of Mannes College the New School of Music.
The concert, held at Rye Presbyterian Church, was a memorial tribute to Rosemary Peeler who passed away in 2013. As many of you may know, Rosemary's life was dedicated to the appreciation of music and helping others. She was a pianist, singer and violinist as well as a teacher for nearly 20 years at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Spence and Brearley Schools in New York City and Manhattanville College. As if those activities weren’t enough to fill her days, she also helped build houses with Habitat for Humanity, volunteered in soup kitchens and food banks and on the cancer floor at White Plains Hospital.
