Audience enjoys diverse mix of music at Choral Festival – New York News






SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y.>> More than 100 show-goers spent their Sunday afternoon at the 17th annual Saratoga Choral Festival, where they heard a diverse mix of music.

From waltzes to ballets to Afro-Cuban cadences and jazzy modern standards, along with popular theater favorites such as “Singing in the Rain,” the audience at this year’s festival was entertainment with a variety of songs – all with the common theme of celebrating music written to accompany dance.

This theme came naturally with the festival’s new venue this year, the National Museum of Dance on South Broadway in Saratoga Springs.

Attendees came to the museum from around the region for this free concert, performed by an ensemble of 10 all-professional singers, under the direction of pianist and conductor Noah Palmer.
