2016-2017 Season Concert Dates Announced!
11.19.16 - An Anton Anthology
Come experience the magic of "the Antons" - Bruckner and Rubinstein! The program features Bruckner's "Te Deum" and "Requiem," as well as music by Rubinstein.
Saturday, 7:30PM - St. George Episcopal Church, Clifton Park
12.11.16 - Handel's Messiah
An annual tradition! Composed in 1741, and performed regularly since, come enjoy what many already have - from the Overture to the final Amen, including the famous "Hallelujah" chorus!
Sunday, 3:00PM - Union College Memorial Chapel, Schenectady
5.7.17 - St. John Passion
First performed on Good Friday of 1724, the St. John Passion was one of the few works that Bach revised and revived intermittently until the end of his life - a clear demonstration of the high value he placed on this masterpiece! The Octavo Singers will present this oratorio in the beautiful - and appropriate - setting of St. John the Evangelist Church!
Sunday, 3:00PM - St. John the Evangelist Church, Schenectady
Join us at a Summer Sing!
Thinking about joining the Octavo Singers? Already a member and miss rehearsing? Join us for one or both of our Summer Sings! We'll try on next season's literature, and then enjoy an ice cream party!
Our Summer Sings will be held on July 11 and August 8, and will take place at Zion Lutheran Church (153 Nott Terrace in Schenectady). Singing begins at 7pm, and the ice cream begins at 8pm. The cost is $5 per 'sing.' See you there!
Performance of Haydn's "Die Jahreszeiten" was an Overwhelming Success!
Many thanks to all our wonderful audience members who attended our “Seasons” performance last Saturday. It was a terrific turnout, especially given all the competing venues from which listeners had to choose this weekend. We appreciate your continued support, and we hope to see you at our next concert on November 19. Without you, our singers would have little reason to learn this beautiful literature! Thanks again!
