Hudson Chorale:  Mass in D by American Master John Knowles Paine For over two centuries, European composers were given preferential treatment over Americans, but that trend has finally turned itself around. Music lovers will be given a rare opportunity to hear America’s first large-scale choral and orchestral work: the Mass in D by the US composer John Knowles Paine. On Saturday, May 5, 2012, at 8:00 pm, Hudson Chorale will be bringing this Civil War-era masterpiece to the Irvington High School Auditorium on 40 North Broadway, Irvington, NY. Being the largest semi-professional chorus in Westchester, Hudson Chorale is uniquely suited to introduce this masterpiece to audiences seeking to broaden their musical experiences.  Composed between 1861 and 1866, it was first performed in the US in 1868.  While owing some stylistic depth to German composers such as Beethoven and Handel, it contains stunning originality and romantic splendor that was unparalleled until Verdi composed his Requiem a full ten years later.  Michael Conley, Music Director, and the 80-voice chorus are excited to honor a great American composer by presenting his Mass in D with full orchestra and soloists. Maestro Conley will give a pre-concert talk about the composer and his work starting at 7:00 pm prior to the performance. Full information regarding the work can be found on the chorus website.  Tickets are $25, $10 for students, and can be purchased at the door - or in advance by calling (914) 462-3212 - or through the website: www.hudsonchorale.org.  Irvington High School has ample parking and is handicap accessible.

Taconic Opera Seeking Choral Singers for Rossini’s Beloved Petite Messe Solennelle
Finishing off its 2011-2012 season and continuing its tradition of presenting an annual choral masterwork by an opera composer, Taconic Opera will be offering two performances of Petite Messe Solenelle by Gioacchino Rossini, the composer of The Barber of Seville, Cinderella (La Cenerentola), and many others. Since this work is a favorite among choral singers, the company is extending an invitation to them to collaborate in this concert program featuring the Taconic Opera chorus, and professional lead singers and orchestra. The concert will be conducted under the baton of Dan Montez, General Director of the Taconic Opera.
Completed in Rossini’s later years and one of very few works he offered to the public during those years, he describes with characteristic wit why he chose to write a sacred mass: "Good God—behold completed this poor little Mass. You know well, I was born for comic opera. Little science, a little heart, that is all. So may you be blessed, and grant me Paradise!” The Emperor Napolean found the mass to be neither little (Petite), solemn (Solennelle) or even liturgical. Audiences find this controversial but exciting work fascinating, unique, and a true pleasure for the ear and the heart to experience.
            Performances are at the Ossining United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 3:00pm. Chorus rehearsals will take place on 801 Kitchewan Road (Route 34) and will begin around March 28 and will continue on Saturdays from 3-5pm and Wednesdays from 7-9pm until the concert dates. Choral singers wishing to learn the piece for the first time or eager wipe the dust of their old score are encouraged to join. There are no membership fees, but singers must supply their own music. A short, painless, friendly audition is required and will be done by appointment at a convenient time for the auditioner. For further questions, concerns or to schedule an audition, contact Mary Corda: divamaryc@aol.com or (914) 649-1826.

Maryknoll Antique And Classic Car Show Coming To Ossining In June: An employee-driven fundraising event that will provide Westchester County with what may be its largest antique and classic car show, and what could be one of the Hudson Valley’s largest car shows, has started revving its engines at the Maryknoll Society in Ossining.  The lay employees with the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers decided to navigate beyond their regular daily responsibilities to organize a fundraiser that supports Maryknoll, promotes the work of the society and opens the Maryknoll Mission Center and grounds to the New York metropolitan area community. Collective brainstorming led down a path to an antique and classic car show for this coming June that will welcome everyone to the 100-acre Maryknoll campus near the Hudson River in Ossining. 

The “Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers’ Antique and Classic Car Show” is scheduled for Sunday, June 10 (rain date: Sunday, June 17) and hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. All the activities at Maryknoll (55 Ryder Road in Ossining) that day will be provided for just a $5 per family suggested admission fee. More details are available at www.mfbcarshow.com.  Local sponsors include the Ossining PBA (which will bring along a SWAT vehicle), Briarcliff Classic & Imports, Brian’s Automotive of Peekskill and T/T Auto Parts (CarQuest) of Ossining. Participating local vendors include Liberty Mutual Insurance, Briarcliff Classic & Imports and the U.S. Postal Service.
Awards And Prizes
The show is expected to attract about 100 cars from a 50-mile radius surrounding Maryknoll. The cars will range from pre-war antiques to rides from the disco era.
The first registered car for the show is a 1960 Thunderbird. The show also will feature the famous 1953 Hansgen-Jaguar Special owned by Bob Millstein of Briarcliff Manor. The Jaguar XK120 Special won at such events as the 1953 Watkins Glen Grand Prix.
More than 20 awards will be presented to car owners and the competition will be professionally judged by the Road Knights Auto Club. Throughout the day, prizes will be announced for car owners and all the people who attend the show.
More Than Just Cars
Besides attracting car buffs, the event will provide many activities to entertain the entire family.
  • Children’s activities will include a slot-car race track and face painting. Children also will be introduced to a seedling program associated with Maryknoll’s Our Global Pachamama Farm, the on-campus farm that generates 10,000 pounds of food annually for local food pantries.
  • Live ‘50’s and 60’s music will be heard across the grounds throughout the day and the pot of gold for the 50/50 raffle already is growing.
  • Plenty of summer-style food, including hamburgers, ice cream, sausage and peppers, home-baked goods and plenty more, will be available.
  • Tours of Maryknoll’s Seminary Building, believed to be the largest fieldstone building in the country, will include visiting the main chapel, a museum about Maryknoll’s work of serving the poor around the world and a gift shop with unique items from the countries in which Maryknoll serves.
Anyone looking to display a classic car at the show can register at the car show website, or call 914-944-3612. Continue to visit the website for updated news and information about the Maryknoll car show.
