Westchester Oratorio Society, Benjamin Niemczyk Artistic Director, celebrates its 20th Anniversary Season on Sunday afternoon May 6 with a performance entitled “Lux Perpetua” at Bedford Presbyterian Church. The concert opens with renowned organist Anthony Newman performing Bach’s Cantata No.29 and two choruses from his original choral work “Te Deum” on the Church’s magnificent Pasi Opus 13 pipe organ. The performance also features the iconic Mozart “Requiem” performed in memory of Karen Spallina, a member of the WOS extended family.
Described by Wynton Marsalis as “The High Priest of Bach,” Anthony Newman has maintained a 40-year career as America’s leading organist, harpsichordist and Bach specialist. His prodigious recording output includes more than 170 cds on such labels as CBS, SONY, Deutsche Grammaphon, and Vox Masterworks. No less prodigious a composer, his works have been heard in Paris, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow, Warsaw, New York and London.
For the “Requiem,” the chorus will be accompanied by the WOS Festival Orchestra which includes some of the finest young musicians in the New York area along with principal players of major ensembles and features soloists Miriam Frances Stoner, Soprano, Mary Štech, Alto, Philip Anderson, Tenor and Benjamin Bloomfield, Bass.
