CLASSIC CHORAL SOCIETY
Eisenhower Hall Theater
USMA - West Point, NY
Did you know that although we may sound like professionals (and indeed some of us are or have been), all of the singers with Classic Choral Society are unpaid volunteers? However, there’s very little that’s free in putting on a concert. The wonderful musicians that accompany us are paid professionals, and the cost for copyrighted music for singers, musicians and conductor can add up. Yet, we remain committed to bringing first-class choral performances to the Hudson Valley – FREE OF CHARGE.
Please join us at the Newburgh Panera, on Monday, November 5th, between 4 and 8 PM and Panera will donate 20% of the gross sales from anything you buy to eat in or take out. Just download a copy of this flyer to your phone or print a copy to present to the cashier for us to receive credit. Thank you for helping to keep classic choral music alive and free!

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.
