Good news for fans of the Philadelphia region's choral music scene! By popular demand, our Friday Choral Connection, which airs every Friday at 1:30 PM, will be extended into June. And we’ve expanded our offerings to include four more choirs.

Live from the WRTI Performance Studio, we heard moving selections from Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts, performed by musicians who will be appearing with the Bucks County Choral Society in Ellington’s historic work. WRTI's Bob Perkins and Debra Lew Harder host.

WRTI welcomes the Bucks County Choral Society to our broadcast line up. Don't miss a recording of the opening concert of their 40th season with Music Director Thomas Lloyd conducting a performance of the Rachmaninoff All-Night Vigil, a symphony for a cappella voices, considered a crowning achievement of Russian Orthodox choral literature. Sunday, December 30th, 5 to 6 pm.

In celebration of the Bucks County Choral Society's 40th anniversary, distinguished Artistic Director Thomas Lloyd will lead the ensemble in Rachmaninoff's stunning All-Night Vigil - a symphony for a cappella voices, considered a crowning achievement of Russian Orthodox choral literature - on October 28th. Contrary to what the title might lead one to believe, this choral masterpiece is only about an hour in length.
