A look back at WVC's Fall 2019 Season
"The concerts, directed by Stanley Curtis and accompanied by Gail Johnson, featured musical selections ranging from Henry Mollicones's cantata, 'A Christmas Celebration,' to Ed Legeski's choral revue, 'I Love Christmas,' featuring many classic holiday favorites."
Professor Mollicone (https://henrymollicone.com) was the guest conductor for the performance of his "A Christmas Celebration" at WVC's concert on Sunday, Dec. 15th, at 4:00 pm at St. Stephen RC Church.

Email from Henry Mollicone to Stanley Curtis, December 18, 2019:
"Dear Stanley, Gail, and members of the Warwick Valley Chorale,
I would like to thank all of you for making my visit so enjoyable!
Beside the beautiful singing, I would just like to say that I believe Stanley‘s philosophy of nurturing the choir has worked so well! Really, there is a camaraderie and joy about this group that is quite rare. This was quite apparent to me at the rehearsals and performance, and also at the after concert get together at Fratello‘s.
Please keep up your wonderful spirit! It was a joy to conduct this choir, and let me say again what a wonderful job you did with this piece which is over 30 years old, as I am also!🤗🤗🤗
Love and blessings,
WVC members are ready for their December 2019 concerts.
