have a new-found appreciation for location scouts. Trying
to find the perfect venue in which to perform the C Minor
Mass was almost as difficult as singing it!
needed superior acoustics, room enough to handle a 73-member
double chorus plus a 35-piece orchestra and a suitably located
also had to have sufficient seating, be centrally located,
easy to find, provide enough parking space, be available on
January 19th AND be affordable to a community-based non-profit
if that weren't enough...it would really, really great if the architecture
itself could approximate the late 18th century.
are a LOT of places in Westchester that made the grade in some or
most of these criteria, but we found only one that made the grade
across the board. That place is the historic Presbyterian Church
of White Plains.
on North Broadway just a few blocks south of Interstate 287 (exit
6), this beautiful place sits on land that was deeded to the congregation
all the back in 1714...five years before Leopold Mozart was born.
Even though the sanctuary of the current church building was dedicated
100 years after Wolfgang's birth, the architecture harks back to
a much earlier time.
are so looking forward to performing this piece in this place. We
hope you'll come and enjoy it with us.
