ABOUT the chorus
The Mid-Hudson Women's Chorus is a choir based in the Hudson Valley. The group traditionally performs two seasonal concerts — one in early winter and one in the spring. Our group also occasionally performs at area adult residences, seasonal events, and other community venues.
Rehearsals and most concerts take place at the St. James United Methodist Church, which is located at 35 Pearl Street in Kingston, NY (on the northwest corner of Pearl and Fair Streets).
Proceeds from ticket sales and advertisers go not only towards the group's expenses, but also to providing an annual scholarship to a local high school graduate who will be pursuing a degree in music. Selection of the scholarship recipient is based on an application and an audition (or tape). A committee makes the final selection. Applications are available in the Spring through high school music departments, or you can reach out to us using our website contact page to request a downloadable scholarship application.
Wendy Lowe is a graduate of the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. She has been a member of several local choirs including Ars Choralis where she was a featured soloist. She also plays Saxophone, Oboe, and Recorder with a variety of local ensembles including the Ulster Community College Community Band and Wind Ensemble, the Saugerties Community Band, and the Rhinebeck Legion Band. She is currently the Organist and Choir Director at Rondout Valley United Methodist Church. Ms. Lowe believes that music should be fun and her goal for the audience is to make them laugh and make them cry.
