Hudson Chorale, Westchester’s largest mixed chorus, will open its 4th season on Saturday and Sunday, January 25 and 26 at 3:00 pm at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church with a moving and uplifting concert of choral works by American composers who looked to American poets for their inspiration. Poets to be featured include the incomparable Robert Frost, Walt Whitman and Elizabeth Bishop. Composers include Randall Thompsons (Frostiana, Alleluia, The Last Words of David), Normal Dello Joio (A Jubilant Song), and David Brunner (I Am in Need of Music). Poetry and music are clearly two art forms meant for each other.
Following the concert, the audience is invited to join the performers for an informal reception, a long-standing Hudson Chorale tradition. The chorus members bring the food and drink, the audience members bring their enthusiasm. It’s a party and everyone is invited. Tickets are $25, $10 for students, and can be purchased at the door or in advance by calling (914) 462-3212, or through the website: www.hudsonchorale.org. The Pleasantville Presbyterian Church is located at 400 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, NY. Handicap parking is available and conveniently located.
