best place to hear a wasp choir New York 2003 - UNION THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
Established in 1836, UNION THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY tilts Christian despite its commitment to represent a "cross-section of religious, racial, and cultural heritages." "Bach in the Big Apple" featured a gender-split choir of 30 over-50 WASPs (copious tweed jackets and plaid skirts). The audience was invited to sing along twice. Ageism fading, I joined in, stirred by Bach's range from funereal dread to cosmic bliss. Not enough to be born again, but enough to catch this fall's "Messiah Sing Along."
