Locals Singers Tackle Masterpiece

New Hyde Park residents will headline the Mineola Choral Society’s (MCS) next performance on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. in the Cathedral of the Incarnation at 50 Cathedral Avenue in Garden City. Singers Cassandra Lems, Carol Wendling, Joan Alford, Carole Morrison and Lawrence Fong will take the stage when the choral society will perform Johannes Brahms’ towering choral masterwork, EineDeutsches Requiem. 

 

In this work, Brahms departed from the traditional liturgical components of a requiem Mass, and instead selected Old and New Testament verses from the German Luther Bible, assembled into seven movements to be performed by chorus, baritone and soprano soloists, and orchestra. The work has been called the central work of Brahms’ career, the one that established him as a composer of major stature and linked two of the most important spheres of his lifelong musical endeavor, the vocal and the symphonic.

 

The Mineola Choral Society, now in its 66th concert season, is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to the performance of choral music. It draws its membership from more than 29 Long Island communities and New York City.

 

Under the direction of Thomas W. Jones, the MCS presents two concerts a year with a repertoire that spans sacred, operatic, classical and popular choral works, and also appears with the Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra,which has performed throughout Long Island, for that organization’s annual Christmas concert.

 

Tickets are $20 ($15 for seniors and students). For more information about this concert, go to www.mineolachoralsociety.org or call 516 294-1175.

Sports

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week. 

 

“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said. 

The Sewanhaka Indians relied heavily on its offense in the first two victories and head coach George Kasimatis relies on one player to set the tone for his group; senior, running back Brenton Mighty. 

 

Mighty is versatile as a running back, as he possesses the ability to run hard between the tackles, lower his shoulder and run into the defender, or run to the outside and break one deep. He also has good hands and is utilized by quarterback Elijah Tracey, as a receiver out of the backfield. 

 

“He makes such a difference in the run game,” said Kasimatis. “Teams have to respect that and it opens up the pass and the possibility for a lot of play action passes.”
