QUEENS COLLEGE CHORAL SOCIETY INVITES NEW MEMBERS
TO SING ELLINGTON’S SACRED CONCERTS AND MENDELSSOHN’S ELIJAH

FLUSHING, NY, August 7, 2013 – The Queens College Choral Society is seeking new members for its 2013-14 concert season, which will feature Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts and Mendelssohn’s Elijah, two magnificent works. The Sacred Concerts are among the major achievements of the last decade of Ellington’s life, and Elijah is one of the most beloved oratorios ever written.

Auditions for new members will take place on the following Wednesdays in Room 246 of the Music Building at Queens College:

August 21, and September 4, 6–8:30 pm
August 28, and September 11, 6–7:15 pm

Rehearsals are held from 7:30 pm to 9:45 pm on Wednesdays at Queens College, and will begin on August 28, 2013. Auditions consist of basic singing skills—no preparation is necessary.

From its founding in 1941, the Queens College Choral Society has offered Queens College students, faculty, and staff—and other music lovers from Queens, Manhattan, and Nassau/Suffolk Counties—the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterpieces. The society welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds and is open to anyone with prior singing experience.
