What did you do in the arts this week?

The fall arts season is in full swing. How have you been participating in the arts in Broome County?

    The “Immigrants by Choice” concert by the Madrigal Choir of Binghamton Saturday (Oct. 22) at Trinity Episcopal Church in Binghamton was the antidote to all the anti-immigrant rhetoric and fervor stirred up by this year’s presidential campaign. Each composer on the program fled from persecution elsewhere and, settling in the U.S., immeasurably enriched our culture. Hats off to Director Bruce Borton, for creating this program, and to organist Tim Smith, pianist Jean Hensseler, 16 Strings Quartet and to my fellow Madrigalians for a stellar performance.
    Without a day of respite, we started rehearsing on Sunday for Lessons & Carols, the Madrigal Choir’s annual kick-off to the holiday season. It takes place on Sat., Nov. 26, at 3 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m., at Church of the Holy Trinity, 346 Prospect St., Binghamton. You’ll hear readings of the Christmas story, interspersed with traditional carols, and some old and new choral gems. What a perfect beginning to your holiday celebration.
