"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

The Park Slope Singers Invite To A Choir Concert at St. Paul's Episcopal Church In Carroll Gardens

Untitled
Get ready for a tremendous afternoon of music here in Carroll Gardens on January 26th at 2 PM, when the Park Slope Singers are joined by members of Der Konzertchoir Niederschönhausen from Berlin, Germany, for a choir concert at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Carroll Gardens.  Not only does the program feature Mozart and Schubert, the setting and acoustics at St. Paul's are spectacular.

From Park Slope Singers:
"The Park Slope Singers present a vibrant afternoon of music with two classic masterworks: Mozart's Requiem and Schubert's Mass in G. Both pieces have truly stood the test of time and are undoubtedly familiar to listeners around the world.

Schubert's Mass in G is a popular melodic work with soaring movements of praise and thanksgiving. Mozart's Requiem remains to this day one of the most enduring and mysterious works, as Mozart died before he finished composing it.

The concert will feature soloists Sarah Hawkey (Soprano), Kristin Gornstein (Mezzo-Soprano), Lucas Levy (Tenor) and Brian Mextorf (Bass-Baritone), as well as visiting singers from the Der Konzertchoir Niederschönhausen in Berlin. This marks the beginning of a new international partnership between the German choir and the Park Slope Singers that we hope will result in many future collaborations!"


Admission is $15 /$10 for students and seniors. Purchase your tickets here.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church is located at 199 Carroll Street in Carroll Gardens.
