Battenkill Chorale Offers Young Singer Scholarships

The Battenkill Chorale is offering Young Singer Scholarships to deserving singers ages 14-26, who become members of Washington County’s premiere choral ensemble—the 100-voice Battenkill Chorale. All membership costs will be covered by the Scholarship Award. This is a unique opportunity for young singers to sing great choral works with one of the area’s finest choirs. Founding Artistic Director, Janet McGhee, recently announced her retirement from the Battenkill Chorale. Guest conductor, Noah Palmer, will direct the spring performance.

The spring program, Te Deum: New American Songs of Nature and Praise, features the joyful and uplifting music of Dan Forrest, Jake Runestad and Donald McCullough. Rehearsals begin on January 31, 2019. Performances are April 27th and 28th.

Palmer is currently Assistant Director of Albany Pro Musica, Assistant Conductor of the Broad Street Chorale and Orchestra and Music Director at St. Helena’s Episcopal Church in Lenox. He has also directed the Northern Berkshire Chorale and conducted the Skidmore College Opera Workshop—among many other fine accomplishments.

Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9:45pm at Hubbard Hall, an historic 1878 rural opera house located at 25 East Main Street, Cambridge, NY, with the first rehearsal January 31.
