CLASSIC CHORAL SOCIETY
Eisenhower Hall Theater
USMA - West Point, NY
Hurricane Sandy brought much in the way of destruction throughout the Northeast, however, there are always sliver linings, and an historical gem came to light whilst Linda Bull was carefully going through flood-damaged papers that had been stored in the church's basement. She discovered a proclamation citing the official formation of the Washington Ville Singing Society -- signed by Samuel Moffat, Issac Still and John Jaques.
“We are enormously proud of our connection to the history of the area – and it makes it even more special because we’ve been rehearsing in this space since we formed as CCS back in 1959,” commented Janiece Kohler, Artistic Director of Classic Choral Society, “There’s a long, unbroken line of music and fellowship here.” The chorus always performs one of it’s concerts each season at the church, a venue recognized for its fine acoustics and open architecture.
The Classic Choral Society Chorus & Orchestra are looking forward to sharing a delightfully fresh program of Christmas Holiday music with you.
Even more exciting is for us to let you know you're also being invited to join us - the entire chorus, the orchestra, and all the soloists - singing the world's most popular Christmas Carols, everybody's favorites, from the comfort of your seat in the audience. (Think of it! When was the last time you got to go caroling with a whole orchestra and lots of other people who love to sing?) Well, when??? We can't wait! Please mark your calendars to make sure you don't miss this "feel good" event (free of charge) for you and your whole family.
See you at either (or both!) performance:
