Hudson Chorale is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) in February in preparation for a May 17, 2014, concert with full orchestral accompaniment featuring Ralph Vaughan Williamsâ€™ powerful and moving Dona Nobis Pacem, based on the Civil War Poetry of Walt Whitman, and Joseph Haydns Lord Nelson Mass. The Choraleâ€™s goal is to provide both audience members and singers with the best possible experience in choral singing, offering a repertoire that ranges from the great masterpieces to contemporary compositions. Singers looking for a new or additional choral family are encouraged to consider the Hudson Chorale.
