The Wheels on the Bus

. . . are headed for New York twice this month

• On Saturday, February 12, the Moravian Choir will make its New York concert debut at Merkin Hall in the Kaufman Center, 129 W. 67th St. The program will feature sacred works from South Africa, Brazil, and Hungary; hymns by 18th-century Moravian composers; and Part I of Franz Josef Haydn’s masterwork, The Creation, with student soloists as the archangels. (The choir will perform the complete oratorio April 16-17 in Foy Hall.)

A bus to the event leaves the HUB at 11:00 a.m., offering the afternoon in New York to shop, sightsee, and eat until curtain time at 8:00 p.m. The trip costs $25. Checks should be made out to Moravian College, with “choir trip” in the memo field, and sent to the Music Department. Concert tickets ($25) are not included. They must be purchased from www.kaufman-center.org/calendar.htm. Ext. 1650.

You’ll have the day for sightseeing, shopping, museums, whatever. Also $25. (Seats are going fast!) Information: Jan Ciganick, Ext. 1680.
