The Octavo Singers of Schenectady have been a choral tradition in New York’s Capital Region since 1933.
This Sunday, November 19, they’ll present their fall concert at Immaculate Conception Church in Glenville, NY. The concert will present performances of two masses: one by Ludwig van Beethoven and one by Johann Nepomuk Hummel. Also on the program will be the popular Haydn Concerto for Trumpet in E-flat major, featuring local trumpeter extraordinaire Cathy Sheridan.
On December 9, The Octavo Singers will perform Handel's Messiah at Union College Memorial Chapel in Schenectady, NY.
Curtis Funk has been Artistic Director of The Octavo Singers since 2011 and he joins us on the program.
