Carnegie Hall Trip
You are invited to perform the Brahms Requiem in Carnegie Hall on Monday, June 20, 2022. The residency, including rehearsals and performance, is June 18 – 20, and includes a wonderful post-concert celebratory cruise on New York Harbor with full buffet dinner, bar, dancing, and spectacular views. MidAmerica Productions has made this concert series possible by covering their expenses of hall rental, stage crew, orchestra, soloists, publicity and administration by the fees of the participants, so these package deals do not cover your expenses. They are basically participation fees. But the experience is so fantastic, we found that it was actually worth it. As an adult chorus, you are all able to take care of yourselves and arrange your own airfare, accommodation, transportation, etc., and you are free to enhance your trip as you see fit. Other than showing up to the rehearsals and performance on those three days in June, you are not expected to be part of any group activity. You can go early, stay on later, or make it a quick trip only for the rehearsals and performance. It is your choice. Click on the link to the Choral Concert Only Residency Package of $949 for all of the details. The package link also gives information for a $499 package for affiliated Non-Performers – friends, family, colleagues – who want to be involved with the full experience, and it includes a pass to the rehearsals, a concert ticket, and admission to the post-concert cruise. If you have affiliated non-performers interested in attending the performance and nothing else, they can also simply buy tickets to the performance without purchasing any package deal. The information on this link goes into way more extensive detail than you need on packages and arrangements, but it is the full information.
