    Professional soloists will sing the solo parts. Returning soloists will be soprano Cassandra Lambros, tenor Tom Carle, and bass David Young. New to this concert will be alto Kathryn Elliott.
    It is preferable that singers bring their own scores although some can be available if the director is notified ahead of time. Call Henry Repp at 973-347-0945 if you plan to sing or if you have questions.
