WHS Chorus Impresses At Lincoln Center

The Wellington High School Chorus, under the tutelage of conductor Bradford Chase, spent months preparing for their moment in the sun. They shined on Mother’s Day weekend as the group, backed by a professional orchestra, helped deliver a rousing performance in the New York premiere of The Cry of Jeremiah at New York’s famed Lincoln Center.

The performance, a big hit with the near-capacity crowd, earned rave reviews from the New York Concert Review, which wrote, “The chorus radiated…,with passionate ensemble singing.”

Referring to the lengthy standing ovation the chorus received, the reviewer added, “When the last note was sounded, the audience sprung up as one in a thunderous ovation.”
