About Roaring Chorus

Began in September 2010 in partnership with the New York Public Library, The Roaring Chorus is open to all seniors on Staten Island, 55+, and is offered free of charge at the Richmondtown Library.  Members receive sequential, skill-based music instruction focused on vocal training, intro to basic harmony, ear training and choral singing including two special masterclasses with MCCE baritone Anthony Turner. Repertoire is as diverse as “Penny Lane” by The Beatles and “Seasons of Love” from Rent. The Roaring Chorus gives two public performances alongside MCCE professional musicians each season and accompanied by MCCE pianist Sandra Pace.

The Roaring Chorus spring season resumes March 6, 2017 with ten sessions weekly that will continue through June. Richmondtown Library will again host this program for seniors under the direction of Elizabeth McCullough.
Come join us!
