Mainly Mozart



After a most successful performance of Heaven and Nature Sing, RCS's fall/holiday 2015 concert at St. Clare's Church on Saturday, December 5, the choral group will move on to the spring 2016 celebration of its 65th anniversary.


W.A. Mozart's Vesperae solennes de confessore  or Solemn Vespers will be the main feature of "Mainly Mozart," which will be performed on Saturday, May 21 at 8 PM at St. Clare's Church in Great Kills. 


Since it is RCS's 65th anniversary of bringing great choral works to the community, the group will also reprise the works of other composers they have honored over the decades, including Giuseppe Verdi, and Gabriel Fauré.
