Looking back at their 2005 activities, the society acknowledged another busy year, and is grateful to all who supported them financially as well as those who attended the concerts and Interfaith Services at which they performed. During 2005, the Choral Society participated in both the Annual Interfaith Holocaust Service and the Annual Memorial Day Service. They were also the featured artists for Hemlock Farms Community’s Cultural Arts Department’s “Main Event” both in August, when they presented “An Afternoon With P: D. Q. Bach, and Other Musical Insults,” and in December, when they performed Handel’s “The Messiah.” A second December concert was also presented at the First Presbyterian Church in Hawley with traditional holiday music. During the year, the Choral Society meets every Monday evening at 7:00 PM at the community’s Conference Center.
