Looking backwards while looking forwards
SOUNDS like a recipe for falling down, but it’s actually a marvelous reason for a Gala! New Amsterdam Singers have been part of the musical fabric of New York City for 50 years, and we are looking forward to many, many more. It’s time for a truly swell party. And to add to the fun, we get to celebrate Clara Longstreth’s 80th birthday, as she continues to lead and inspire us.
Reconnect with old friends (we are hoping to see lots and lots of alumni, and past assistant conductors), and connect with our newer members who will carry us into the next 50 years. The Gala is the perfect opportunity for the NAS family to get together, as we dine, dance, and sing our way into our next half century. So let’s reunite and reignite, as we set the night on fire to celebrate 50 years of sublime music-making and fellowship under the leadership of Clara Longstreth!
The venue is Manhattan Penthouse: an 8,000 sq ft full floor elegant penthouse, with giant palladian windows framing sweeping views of New York. It is on 5th Avenue, one block from Union Square, with discounted parking available 300 ft away. With gourmet food and fine wine, and open bar, it’s the perfect setting for a terrific party.
Viva, New Amsterdam Singers!
In this, our 50th season, we are performing newly commissioned works on each of our three programs. With funds raised by our 50th Anniversary Campaign, we look forward to adding even more works to the canon of choral music for future generations of choruses around the country and the world.
