Parkchester Chorus Wraps up Bronx Week with Concert

Continue the celebration of everything “Bronx” as Parkchester Chorus, 74 years young, concludes the Bronx Week celebration on Sunday, May 18, 3 p.m.

Parkchester Chorus spring theme, “The Heavens Are Telling”, is a journey through the cosmos, in music and song. This concert, developed by Parkchester Chorus long time Director, Mrs. Lorraine C. Nanko, is built around James Weldon Johnson’s poem, “Creation”. This special and unique concert, scheduled for Sunday, 3 p.m., May 18, 2014, contains many types of music all honoring heaven and the universe.  

One of the most unique factors of Parkchester Chorus is that the chorus consists of talented Bronx vocal musicians of all ages and experienced instrumentalists. The concert is held at First Presbyterian Church at Throggs Neck, 3051 East Tremont Avenue, across from Lehman High School. The entrance to the parking lot is on Dudley Avenue, off East Tremont Avenue.  Limited parking is available. First Presbyterian Church is easily accessible by train or bus as it is just two and a half blocks up from “The Square” on East Tremont Avenue and Westchester Square.  

Tickets are $20 for Adults and $10 for Students. 

Keep in mind that Director, Lorraine C. Nanko, the Fine Arts Director at Cardinal Hayes High School, was inspired to create this concert and has embroidered a program containing vocal music from the church to Broadway, all relating to the heavens, stars and sky and the spoken word of the magnificent poem of James Weldon Johnson, “Creation”.  Parkchester Chorus website has recently been updated.
