Thirty-six singers from College of Lake County's choral program will perform in New York City's famed Carnegie Hall on June 16. Led by Professor Charles Clency, director of choral music, the singers will be in New York for rehearsals and sightseeing from June 13 to 17. The choir, which includes traditional-age students and older community members, will perform Haydn's masterpiece, "Paukenmesse" (Mass in Time of War) as part of a Manhattan Concert Productions show. "I am very proud of these singers who have been working so hard for nearly a year to learn and perfect this difficult, 40-minute piece of music," said Clency, who will retire from CLC at the end of June.
