Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - BY LYNN CUR­WIN lynn.cur­win@truro­

A group of Truro singers will soon be on stage at Carnegie Hall.

Mem­bers of the Cantabile Singers are go­ing to New York to take part in a per­for­mance of Han­del’s Mes­siah on Nov. 25.

“ is is a dream re­al­ized for my­self, and for many of us,” said Chris Bow­man, the Cantabile So­ci­ety’s artis­tic di­rec­tor. “I get to be one of the singers and, as a singer, I’m very much look­ing for­ward to cross­ing that o my bucket list.”

e Truro group was in­vited to take part in the Distin­guished Con­certs In­ter­na­tional New York (DCINY) Con­cert Series, and will join more than 400 other singers for the show.

“The Cantabile Singers re­ceived this in­vi­ta­tion be­cause of the qual­ity and high level of mu­si­cian­ship demon­strated by the singers and the high qual­ity of their au­di­tion record­ing,” said Dr. Jonathan Grif­fith, artis­tic di­rec­tor and prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor for DCINY.

“These won­der­ful mu­si­cians not only rep­re­sent a high qual­ity of mu­sic and ed­u­ca­tion, but they also be­come am­bas­sadors for the en­tire com­mu­nity.”

Twenty-one singers from Truro are go­ing to New York for ve days, and will spend about 10 hours in re­hearsals. One of the things Bow­man is most wor­ried about is get­ting ev­ery­one across Man­hat­tan for an early morn­ing re­hearsal on Black Fri­day.

is will be Bow­man’s rst trip to Carnegie Hall.

“It’s a very ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to have a great mu­sic-mak­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with friends from Truro, and is speaks to the qual­ity of mu­sic Cantabile is mak­ing,” he said. “I’m so hon­oured to be work­ing with them.”

Peo­ple in Truro will have an op­por­tu­nity to hear the Cantabile singers per­form Han­del’s Mes­siah on Sun­day, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. at First United Church. ey will be ac­com­pa­nied by Cyn­thia Davies on piano.

Tick­ets are $25, and are avail­able at Mac­quar­ries – Es­planade lo­ca­tion, First United Church, from choir mem­bers, and at the door.
