The Cantata Singers, pausing for a quick photo op before our 2017 Christmas concert at New Beginnings United Methodist Church. The performance of seasonal music accompanied by trombones, violin, flute, recorder and some fun percussion brought the audience of around 320 to their feet after the carol sing that concluded the program! It was a great Christmas!

This year, join us at Notre Dame High School on Lower Maple Avenue in Elmira on Sunday, December 16th as we celebrate music of the holiday season with the Notre Dame choral program and lots and lots of brass!

2018-2019 SEASON Events and performances

What an amazing and wonderful two days we enjoyed with Monroe Crossing and the music of Carol Barnett! From the easy and fun dress rehearsal on Tuesday afternoon through the incredibly fun performance Wednesday evening we had so much fun!! Our singing caps are definitely tipped to Mark, Lisa, Matt, Derek, and David for their great playing and their love of what they do. With all the fun music and a great crowd, Schuyler County was definitely rocking! Or should that be “blue-grassing?”

You still have one more opportunity to catch the singers this season, we hope to see you at the Wings of Eagles Museum in June!

Also on the program will be some fun surprises and very touching tributes!
