Ars Choralis Concert Season 2022-23

Welcome Yule: Wondrous Mystery

An Annual Holiday Tradition


December 3, 2022 at Holy Cross / Santa Cruz Episcopal Church, Kingston, 8 pm
December 4, 2022 at Overlook United Methodist Church, Woodstock, 4 pm

Celebrate the holidays with Ars Choralis as we explore the mysterious musical expression of Christmas. From the Middle Ages to contemporary composers, we’ll discover the wonders of the season through music as diverse as a twelfth century mystery play, Charpentier’s 18th century Christmas motet, “In nativitatem Domini canticum” and contemporary favorites such as Morten Lauridsen’s “O Magnum Mysterium” and Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria”.

Forward Together

A New Year’s Eve Free Concert

December 31, 2022 at Old Dutch Church, Kingston, 6 pm

Ars Choralis, The City of Kingston, and the Old Dutch Church are proud to present a New Year’s Eve Program Forward Together.  In keeping with an Ars Choralis tradition of offering programs on December 31st that have themes of peace, respect for one another and inclusiveness, this year’s concert is based on Langston Hughes’s poem, “Let America Be America Again”. Through words and song, it showcases the challenges that many people have as they weave themselves into the fabric of American society, enriching it with their culture and helping to move us all forward together. This program is, in part, the finale of the 150th Anniversary of the City of Kingston celebration.

Freedom: In Their Voices

Music and words of African Americans


March 18, 2023 at Riverview Baptist Church, Kingston, 7 pm
March 19, 2023 at Overlook Methodist Church, Woodstock, 4 pm

For centuries, African Americans had been denied the basic rights to live free and be educated. Against all odds,  a small minority were able to find a path to creative expression. This unique concert tells their stories, in their voices, through music, slave testimonies, letters and autobiographies. It brings two centuries of music of unknown African American composers out of obscurity for all to hear as well as more familiar spirituals, gospel songs and works of Duke Ellington and Undine Smith Moore.

Brahms Requiem


June 24, 2023 at 7pm
June 25, 2023 at 4pm
Maverick Concert Hall, Woodstock

Ars Choralis presents Brahms’ masterful Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) presented with a new arrangement for chamber orchestra. Brahms scored the work for symphony orchestra and later made a version for piano duet. However, while cost effective, performances with only piano lack the richness and color of the symphony score. We will be using a new arrangement for chamber ensemble by Iain Farrington that features the piano at its core.

Join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook to get the latest updates on our plans, program notes, and samples of what we’re working on.

Tickets prices, except the New  Year’s Eve concert, will be $25 ($30 for Maverick) at the door or $20 ($25 for Maverick) advance sale online
and $10 for children under 18.
