Thursday: Great choral music in Newburgh

I don’t think I need to keep reminding people that, if you want symphonic, chamber and choral music, the Hudson Valley is a pretty great place to be. The sheer number of symphonic, chamber and choral experiences you can have – Maverick, Greater Montgomery, Esopus, GNSO, HV Philharmonic, Greater New York Wind Symphony, Kairos, list goes on, and on, and on – probably outnumbers almost anything else you can do here.

With that, the Mount Saint Mary College choir is doing its spring concert, featuring composers such as Handel and Haydn. It’s Thursday. From MSMC:

The Mount Saint Mary College choir will present a spring concert – Music Through the Ages – on April 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Founders Chapel.

The concert is free and open to the public. The Mount is located at 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh, N.Y.

Music Through the Ages will feature the works of famous composers like Palestrina, Victoria, Handel, Haydn, Fauré, Simon, and more.

Longtime Mount professor Durward Entrekin serves as director of the Mount Saint Mary College choir.

Entrekin has studied with Thomas Murray, Paul Jenkins and Jane Douglas. He earned the Julia Sherman Prize, and was the second organist in the Yale School of Music’s history to win the Woolsey Sprague Concerto Competition.
