Our Mission

To promote the awareness of the spiritual bond that unites all people by performing music for the Glory of God and to raise cultural awareness through music appreciation, education and vocal performance training.



 Our 27th Spring Concert will be presented on Saturday, April 8th, 2017 at 7:30 PM.  The venue will again be Grace Episcopal Church, 200 Highfield Lane, Nutley, NJ.

In brief, the program is traditionally sacred and explores various themes of Heaven.  It opens with pieces about the majesty of God's creation (Haydn's The Heavens are Telling), and illustrates the safety, and beauty of heaven and dwelling with Him.  We then move to some trials and prayers.  And the program climaxes with arrival in heaven after being faithful.
Represented are pieces from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic era.  There are recent, some even current, composers and arrangers and also a spiritual and a gospel song.  


Our 27th Annual Christmas Concert this past year included selections from G. F. Handel's "Messiah" ending in an audience participation presentation of the "Hallelujah Chorus", "In Dulci Jubilo" by Michael Praetorius, "Ave Maria" by Lorenzo Perosi and "Star Carol" by John Rutter.  In addition to other carol settings sung by the chorus we continued our tradition of singing carols with the audience.              Thanks to YOU, our audience and boosters, it was a wonderful success. 

Thank you all for your continued support!
