“Christmas in the Old and New Worlds”

Our inaugural concert with our new Artistic Director Colin Britt features a variety of carols from around the world, including Mendelssohn’s oratorio Christus, selections from Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, and a variety of new pieces and traditional holiday favorites to sing along.
“Seeing Double: Music for Double Choir”
Sunday, March 5, 2017
Centered on the performance of Frank Martin’s luminous “Mass for Double Choir A Cappella,” this concert continues our exploration of our acoustically beautiful home at Judson Memorial Church. Also featured are pieces by Bach, Mendelssohn, and our own Colin Britt.
Sunday, May 21, 2017
The West Village Chorale is perhaps most at home performing the music of American composers, and this program offers a diverse palette —from early American music and traditional spirituals to works by Copland, Bernstein, Thompson and Whitacre.

Thanks for the Summer Singing!
It’s been a wonderful summer of singing at Judson! Many thanks to everyone who came and sang with us for a week, or two…or ten! We are also very grateful to the wonderful conductors and soloists who each brought their unique talents and interpretations to our choral favorites, and to David Ralph–our one-man orchestra!
