French-American Choir of New York Performs at St. Agnes

The French American Choir of New York, a group of international amateur singers, brought its repertoire of old American and European songs to Saint Agnes Church on Palm Sunday evening. Conducted by the opera singer and President of the Long Island Opera Company Anne-Julia Audray, the choir performed Mozart, traditional French and English songs as old as the XVIIth century, Bach and Purcell among others and some opera extracts like the Barcarolle from Tales of Hofmann, for the pure joy to fill the beautiful acoustic of Saint Agnes Church. The French-American Choir of New York was founded by Anne-Julia Audray in 2013. It has performed in various venues across New York, including the French consulate, and was part of the 2014 production of La Traviata by the Long Island Opera Company, performed in 2014 at the Madison Theater in Long Island.
