Wagner Treble Concert Choir

In recent years, the WTCC has performed Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, excerpts from Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, as well as excerpts and choruses from the opera: Macbeth, Dido and Aeneas, The Marriage of Figaro, and La Traviata. Early music juxtaposed with 20th century and new works are a specialty; sometimes profound, sometimes humourous, but always with the pure sound of women’s voices.

Recent highlights include a 2014 collaboration with the Staten Island Philharmonic, Regina Opera and Voyces in the opera Carmen, and a 2015 concert devoted to works by women composers spanning over 900 years.
