Maestro Steven Fox’s final season with Pro Arte Chorale

Posted: Thursday, January 25, 2018

It is with mixed emotions that the Pro Arte Chorale announces the departure of our Music Director, Steven Fox at the end of our 2017-2018 season. Maestro Fox recently accepted the position of Music Director at The Cathedral Choral Society in Washington DC, succeeding its music director of three decades, J. Reilly Lewis. We are thrilled for Steven as he moves on to the wonderful opportunity and challenge of leading a large symphonic chorus in Washington National Cathedral, but we are very sorry to lose his inspiring musicianship and conducting talents that have brought Pro Arte Chorale to new artistic heights over the past six seasons.

You still have an opportunity to see Steven's brilliant conducting and hear the lovely choral sound he elicits from us in our final two concerts with him. On Sunday, March 18 Pro Arte Chorale will present a concert featuring a selection of favorites from the operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan. The Chorale will be joined by baritone Richard Holmes, a veteran of the renowned NY Gilbert & Sullivan Players, for this light-hearted concert for the whole family. Our final concert with Maestro Fox will take place on Sunday, June 3, featuring the Masters of Baroque: Handel's Coronation Anthems and Vivaldi's Gloria, with brass and percussion from NY’s Clarion Orchestra. Both concerts will take place at 4:00pm at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Ridgewood.
