The Westchester Choral Society (WCS) is celebrating its 75th season this year. Upon its formation in 1942, the group consisted of 15 singers, who performed Bach’s B Minor Mass in its first performance. Now Westchester County’s oldest continuously-performing chorus, WCS includes a roster of nearly 60 singers, ranging in age from 30-75 years old. Under the guidance of Music Director Frank Nemhauser, WCS will prepare a performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana to be presented in a concert on May 13 at White Plains Presbyterian Church.
