Citrus Community Concert Choir Invited to Perform at Carnegie Hall with Conductor Dr. Erin Freeman

New York, N.Y. - February 24, 2016

Outstanding music program receives special invitation

Distinguished Concerts International New York City (DCINY) announced today that Ms. Jacki Scott and the Citrus Community Concert Choir have been invited to participate in a performance of Francis Poulenc's Gloria on the DCINY Concert Series in New York City. This performance will be in Isaac Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, February 19, 2017. These outstanding musicians will join with other choristers to form the Distinguished Concerts Singers International, a choir of distinction. Dr. Erin Freeman will serve as conductor of the performance and clinician for the residency.

Why the invitation was extended

Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY states: “The Citrus Community Concert Choir received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the exceptional quality of their audition recording.

It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and deserving of the community's recognition and support.”

The singers will spend 5 days and 4 nights in New York City in preparation for their concert. “The singers will spend approximately 9-10 hours in rehearsals over the 5 day residency.” says Griffith. “Not all of the time is spent in rehearsals, since there is so much history and culture to see in New York City. However, the performance is the primary purpose for their visit to the city.” Members of the community are encouraged to give financial support in sending these singers to New York by contacting Jacki Scott at 352 – 212-1746 or via email at doxey58@earthlink.net.

Conductor - Dr. Erin Freeman

Dr. Erin Freeman holds a joint position sponsored by the Richmond Symphony, where she serves as Director of the Richmond Symphony Chorus, and Virginia Commonwealth University, where she is Director of Choral Activities. This unique position comes on the heels of seven successful years as the Richmond Symphony's Associate Conductor, and includes overseeing all of the choral ensembles at VCU as well as vocal chamber music, and preparing the 150-voice Richmond Symphony Chorus for all of its performances. Projects for the ‘15-‘16 season include Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, a performance and recording honoring the Richmond Symphony Chorus's founder, Dr. James Erb, and a collaboration with VCU's Global HIV-AIDS initiative.

In addition to her work in Richmond, Freeman just completed her first season as Artistic Director of Wintergreen Performing Arts, a summer music festival and academy in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Her creative and vibrant programming, celebrating the 20th year of the organization, led to record crowds, multiple sell- outs, increased donations, and an endorsement in the Washington Post. Under her leadership, the festival boasted 20 world premieres, including a new score by Daron Hagen to Charlie Chaplin's The Tramp, conducted by Freeman, and the academy expanded to include voice, conducting, and arts administration programs.
