Join the Westchester Oratorio Society as the group presents a concert featuring Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor, K. 427 performed with the WOS Festival Orchestra and soloists Brynn Terry, Soprano, Mun-Tzung Wong, Mezzo Soprano, Angelo Mazzone, Tenor and Quentin Lee, Baritone at the South Salem Presbyterian Church. The Oratorio Society will also be presenting the composer’s Ave Verum Corpus and Laudate Dominum.
Artistic Director Benjamin Niemczyk is looking forward to the chorus’s fourth collaboration with the Festival Orchestra, the essence of which is created by contractor and first viola, Kallie Ciechomski, who pulls from her network of graduate students and recent graduates of New York’s major music schools to create an ensemble that has distinguished itself in previous appearances. In addition to conducting Westchester Oratorio Society Niemczyk leads the New York Session Symphony, New Westchester Symphony Orchestra, Chrysalis Consort and is music director at St Boniface Oratory Church in Brooklyn.
Founded in 1997, Westchester Oratorio Society is known for its performances of early music, traditional choral masterworks and contemporary pieces before local audiences with professional soloists and orchestras, and collaborations with premier groups and artists such as Tiffany Consort and REBEL Baroque Ensemble, as well as its appearances in the New York metropolitan area including with the Brooklyn Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The group rehearses on Tuesday evenings at the Katonah Village Library.
