The Brooklyn Philharmonia Chorus, the borough’s oldest community chorus, is looking for new singers. The chorus is holding open auditions for its 60th year on Oct. 6 and Oct. 13 at First Presbyterian Church, 124 Henry St. in Brooklyn Heights.
“We welcome anyone who has an interest in singing the Great Composers, and more, in joining us,” said Choral Director Doug March.
The chorus rehearses on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 10 p.m. (with a 15-minute refreshment break).
The program for the winter concert will include Bach’s “Magnificat,” “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s “Messiah,” Mozart’s “Laudate Dominum” and holiday songs.
“We are a volunteer, community-based, nonprofit group whose purpose is to perform great choral works. Our membership is representative of many different ethnic, racial and cultural groups and, indeed, reflects the great diversity of Brooklyn, as do the audiences attending our concerts,” says March. “The chorus offers singers the opportunity to perform musical compositions accompanied by class ‘A’ professional musicians and soloists at our concerts.”
The chorus also offers free tickets to middle school and high school students, and invites high school and college music students to join, he says.
