80 Years of Music
The 2013-2014 Concert Season will mark an historical passage for the Newburyport Choral Society (NCS) –an 80th Anniversary of bringing outstanding choral music to the Greater Newburyport area. The Choral Society’s dedication to the education and cultural enrichment of the many local communities it serves is evident in its 80 year history, during which time it has performed music spanning centuries, featured up and coming artists, supported local students pursuing an education in music through the Betty Gillette Scholarship program, and involved high school students in concert performances.
In looking forward, NCS envisions even more engagement with the community through its We Sing Program” with a primary goal of engaging adults and children in choral music. Key events will include its increasingly popular Open Community Sing during Newburyport’s Yankee Homecoming festivities, and the inclusion of the Molin Children’s Chorus in the 2013 Winter Concert. Music enriches our lives and NCS wishes to build upon its 80 year legacy by offering the community new opportunities to experience the richness of choral music.
