CLASSIC CHORAL SOCIETY
Eisenhower Hall Theater
USMA - West Point, NY
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.
We encourage you to look over our Becoming a Member page, and contact our director, Jan Kohler at 845-713-4543 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
The music for our Spring 2018 performances will feature exciting works by contemporary choral composers such as Ola Gjeilo, Eric Whitacre, George Shearing, and Kim Andre Arnesen. With the addition of more men’s voices, we’ll be in good shape to present a very special program – watch this website and our Facebook page for updates!
