Review of our Concert at the Met

We got a rave review from The New York Sun!! A few sections from the review:

“I assumed that this would be a pleasing concert, although an amateur one. I was wrong. It was magnificent.

“I have been concentrating on religious music this month and so have heard several large singing ensembles, but none has been even close to the level of professionalism of this strictly volunteer group … The aggregate sound of the assemblage is excellent,and individual bits of melody or harmony move about freely but accurately on a regular basis. The choir expertly combines the two most important tools in a singer’s armamentarium: discipline and passion. They are amateurs in the best of all possible senses.”

“All the material for this presentation was carefully considered for that most high-minded of purposes, a genuine contemplation of our place in the universe.”

Thank you, Fred Kirshnit.
