Starr and many more with the best of today’s Latin and Hip Hop scenes.

This year’s Fair will also feature the Bronx Council on the Arts’ artisans showcasing the works of local Bronx artists, an MTA Antique Bus, and a Kid’s Activity Area featuring face painting and arts and crafts by the Westchester-Zerega Improvement District.

Maestro Galvan has chosen poignant, expressive works whose texts, colors and sonorities transcend the passage of time. Selected compositions include Beethoven's “Hallelujah!,” from The Mount of Olives, and “Elegiac Song;” Brahms’ sacred motet “Create in Me a Clean Heart” (Psalm 51), excerpts from Schubert's Mass No. 6 in E flat major, D950 and Fauré's sublime Pavane, Op.50.
In addition to works by the classical music greats, this program includes compositions by lesser-known modern and contemporary composers such as “Praise The Lord, O My Soul” (Psalm 103) from Four Canticles Op. 78 No. 4, by Amy Beach (Mrs. H.H.A Beach) the celebrated late 19th – early 20th century American composer and pianist, and “Set Me As A Seal,” a moving, sacred choral setting of Song of Soloman 8:6, by Grammy Award winning 21st century American composer and professor of music at Concordia College, René Clausen.
Soloists for the performance are: Malaika Alvaro and Melissa Raymond, soprano; Alexandra Fetner, mezzo soprano; Dale Smith, tenor and Dalton Taylor, bass.
Tickets are available in advance and at the door from BCS: General admission is $20 / two for $35, seniors and students with valid ID, $15 and children through high school, $5. Tickets may also be charged through Brown Paper Tickets by phone at 1-800-838-3006, or online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1409637 .
BCS’s 34th Annual Spring Concert is made possible with public funds from the Bronx Council on the Arts through the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program, and through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs’ Greater New York Arts Development Fund Program, and the support of local businesses, organizations and individuals who appreciate the arts.
The Bronx Concert Singers is a nonprofit volunteer concert choir founded in the Parkchester section of the Bronx by people from all walks of life who love singing great choral music. The chorus presents classical music concerts with either professional orchestra or chamber ensemble and has been a source of cultural enrichment in the community since 1981. BCS is the chorus-in-residence at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church.
