NAS performs its final subscription concert of the 2017-2018 season on Wednesday, May 30 at St. Ignatius of Antioch on West End Ave and 87th St. at 8 p.m. If you have a conflict with that date, you can catch the same program the night before, Tuesday. May 29, at Second Presbyterian Church, conveniently located at Central Park West and 96th St. at 8 p.m. This is an intimate setting with excellent acoustics ; the church offers the program free, or for a free will offering to aid their organ fund. Both concerts include Britten’s beloved Rejoice in the Lamb for chorus and organ, and a piece NAS commissioned for its 50th Anniversary which is fast becoming a singer favorite, The Wave Rises, by Ben Moore on text by Virginia Woolf.
