Coro Vivo and Primo Coro joined ensembles from all over the United States and Canada as part of Music In The Parks 2019. They performed at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania in the morning, then spent the afternoon having fun in the park.
NJYC's Coriste participated in an interactive workshop for music educators focusing on the treble chorus rehearsal. Clinicians included NJYC's own Trish Joyce, as well as Dr. John Leonard and Dr. Nicholas McBride of The College of New Jersey Department of Music, and renowned conductor Rollo Dilworth.
Members of Sola Voce joined the Harmonium Choral Society for a production of one of Bach's most profound and dramatic works, also featuring The Sebastians as the double baroque orchestra and Grammy-winning Dann Coakwell as Evangelist. The performance also brought New York and New Jersey’s finest professional soloists to Morristown, including Grammy-nominated Stephen Sands, award-winning musical theater and classical artist Michael Maliakel, Elena Bird, Patricia Ruggles and Malcolm Merriweather.
Sola Voce, Coro Vivo and Primo Coro took the stage on March 30th to perform for Good Grief, the New Jersey based organization whose mission is to provide unlimited and free support to children, teens, young adults, and families after the death of a mother, father, sister, or brother through peer support programs, education, and advocacy.
