Local Singer Selected to Perform With Premier European Chorus

Jillian Massey

SUNY Oneonta senior Jill Massey will sing Johannes Brahms’ choral masterwork as a chorister with the Philharmonia Chorus on Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Massey, a music major from Bloomville and a 2010 graduate of South Kortright Central School, submitted a video audition in December after being encouraged by Associate Professor of Music Timothy Newton, who will also be singing in the performance. Massey and Newton left Sunday for a week in London, where they will rehearse for the performance and take in some culture.

Newton said this is the first time a SUNY Oneonta student has received the opportunity to perform on such a noteworthy international concert platform. Founded in 1957, the Philharmonia Chorus is one of Europe’s premier symphony choruses.
