Members of the WVC sang Gershwin and Berlin medleys for the residents at the Schervier Pavilion in Warwick on Aug 1.

"The Warwick Valley Chorale will perform three concerts in May, 'Seeking the Right Path: American Songs.'  The concerts, directed by Stanley Curtis and accompanied by Gail Johnson, will present an American choral portrait in anticipation of the Village of Warwick’s sesquicentennial celebration. There will be selections highlighting our nation’s early history, struggles and culture. In addition, the program features a special tribute to the Broadway music of Irving Berlin and George Gershwin." - WVC Press Release, April 16, 2017.
