Parkchester Chorus, Spring Press Release
Announcement: Parkchester Chorus rehearsals for the Spring 2018 season begin Monday, January 22, 2018. If you enjoy singing and the comradery of a chorus, Parkchester Chorus is for you. Currently, there are openings for all voice parts. Membership is open to all comers. Members are of all ages and backgrounds and members come from all-over the Bronx, as well as Westchester. Rehearsals are held weekly on Mondays, from 7:30 – 9:30 PM, at First Lutheran Church of Throggs Neck, 3075 Baisley Avenue, Bronx 10461. Once a month, Sunday afternoon rehearsals are also held at First Lutheran Church. Semester fees are $40 per person, $60 per couple and a $10 per person music fee.
The theme for the spring concert is “Musical Pot-Luck”. The spring 2018 program will include a montage of well-known songs sung by chorus members selected by director, Miles Fellenberg, along with assistant director, Chris Aquino. Parkchester Chorus, the oldest ecumenical chorus in the Bronx, has a long history of musical diversity. Our well received winter program was composed of holiday music celebrating the birth of Christ, in Latin, German and English.
A contest is going on to rename Parkchester Chorus. If your suggestion wins, two free tickets will be awarded for the spring 2018 concert. You can send your suggestion by email through our website or post to our facebook page.
