After the sing-along, the audience, chorus members and staff will continue the festivities with an after party around snacks and drinks.

Each event begins at 7:00 pm at The Church of the Holy Trinity’s Draesel Hall, 316 E. 88th St. on August 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd. Mezzo-soprano Heather Johnson and tenor Ben Warschawski will perform as guest soloists in the Mozart Requiem on August 23.

Mozart: La clemenza di Tito

Vitellia's path to the throne is thwarted by the man who deposed her father, so she presses her admirer Sesto to murder him.

Driven by love, Sesto does his worst. But in return, receives a lesson in forgiveness.
