In celebration of our silver jubilee, we commissioned a piece entitled Draw Her Home with Music by Mark Miller, Composer-in-Residence of the Harmonium Choral Society and Director of Music at Drew Theological School.
Women's Choral Workshop:

In alternating years, we sponsor a Women’s Choral Workshop. This is a highly sought after event, bringing women choral singers from across the entire state of New Jersey.  This biennial event is an opportunity for singers to learn more about their art. It is always a great chance to meet other singers, be exposed to new repertoire and learn new and enhance existing vocal techniques and disciplines. 

 

Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
