We’re giving four superb conductors the opportunity to direct our orchestra in innovative programs of their own choosing for the 2015-2016 season. They are the finalists from among 100 applicants to succeed Dr. Woomyung Choe as Music Director of the GNSO, a position he established in 1995. The conductors will be evaluated by our musicians and audience members, so don’t miss an opportunity to have a say in the next direction of the symphony.
Take a look at the different programs — we think you will love them all!

Director Peter Sipple extends an invitation to all area singers to join the GNSO’s fine community choral organization in preparation for a diverse performance on Sunday, June 5, 2016, 4 pm at St. George’s Episcopal Church, Newburgh. Weekly rehearsals begin Tuesday, March 1, from 7 – 9 pm at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Newburgh.
The Chorale’s spring concert will feature Handel’s Utrecht Jubilate, a setting of the canticle that Handel wrote to honor the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht in 1714. If you are a fan of Messiah and other Handel compositions, you’ll enjoy singing this work. We will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra. For the second half of the program (and offering quite a change!), we’ll perform choruses from select Broadway musicals.
