The Classic Choral Society is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year with two concerts. The program includes a work entitled For a Breath of Ecstacy by American composer Michael John Trotta, featuring the Hudson Valley Strings and oboist Ann Churukian. The program will also introduce Missa Popularis, a mass by Marten Jansson, and concludes with Simple Gifts, the familiar Shaker song interpreted by Grant Cochran.
The concerts will take place on Sun., May 5 at 4 p.m. at United Church of Christ, 2 Old Dominion Rd, Blooming Grove; and Sun., May 12, at 4 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 33 Park Pl., Goshen.
The May 12 concert will be followed by a special, catered “Meet and Greet” for all in attendance, courtesy of Mr. Alan R. Thompson of Goshen. No tickets are required for either concert; donations are welcomed.
