The French American Choir of New York is thrilled to bring its repertoire of old American and European songs to Saint Agnes Church, in Carroll Gardens (Brooklyn).
Conducted by the opera singer and President of the Long Island Opera Company Anne-Julia Audray, the choir will perform Mozart, traditional French and English songs as old as the XVIIth century, Bach and Purcell among others and some opera extracts like the Barcarolle from Tales of Hofmann, for the pure joy to fill the beautiful acoustic of Saint Agnes Church.
With the participation of Meghan Picerno, coloratura soprano, Andrew Pulver, soprano boy (Two Boys at the Metropolitan Opera), and more young talents from the Audray School for Singing.
The French-American Choir of New York was founded by Anne-Julia Audray in 2013. It has performed in various venues across New York, including the French consulate, and was part of the 2014 production of La Traviata by the Long Island Opera Company, performed in 2014 at the Madison Theater in Long Island.
Concert Sunday March, 29, 4pm
Saint Agnes Church, 433 Sackett Street @ Hoyt St
Tickets available for purchase at the door too.

We rehearsed for weeks with the singers and orchestra of the Long Island Opera Company to put together Verdi’s Traviata. Here are some pictures.
We would like to thank Olivier Chazareix for documenting this great musical adventure for the choir.
