The Somerset Hills Community Chorus is seeking singers of all ages and skill levels for the final concert of its 2014 season: French Masters, to be presented at St. Brigid Roman Catholic Church in Peapack on May 3, 2014 at 7:30 pm. The Chorus will perform one of the greatest choral works of the French repertoire: Fauré's Requiem, and will be joined by a distinguished roster of soloists performing stunning music for one and two voices by French composers.
The Somerset Hills Community Chorus was formed under the auspices of Music in the Somerset Hills, an organization established to provide cultural enrichment for the residents of New Jersey's Somerset Hills and the surrounding region through superlative performances of classical masterworks. As part of its ongoing mission to provide amateur musicians with opportunities for fellowship, continued exploration and growth, The Somerset Hills Community Chorus gives less-experienced singers the opportunity to make music with seasoned professionals in a supportive and encouraging environment. Rehearsals will be held on Monday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm, beginning on March 10, 2014, at St. Luke's Church in Gladstone. No prior choral experience is required, but singers must be able to attend all but two of the scheduled rehearsals and the dress rehearsal to participate in the concert.
Interested parties are encouraged to visit MusicSH.org to obtain more information and contact the group's Artistic Director. Tickets for French Masters are now on sale and may also be purchased on the website.
Music in the Somerset Hills is overseen by Artistic Director Stephen Sands, a resident of Gladstone and a professional musician and music educator in the Somerset Hills School District for over 15 years. The organization is supported, in part, by the generous support of its season sponsor, Peapack-Gladstone Bank, and by the Isabel and Algernon M. Ellien Foundation.
