Two local singing groups are looking for some treble, especially with Handel. The Oratorio Society of Queens and the Queens College Choral Society will hold open tryouts this month. More after the jump.

Retired music teacher Patricia Glunt is still conducting business. She recently formed the Jackson Heights Community Orchestra, which will offer its first ever concert tonight, December 12, at the Community United Methodist Church. The all-volunteer, 18-piece ensemble features everything from flute to oboe to cello to keyboards. Glunt, who studied violin performance and composition at the University of the Pacific’s Conservatory of Music, will conduct, and the night’s program will include Handel’s “Overture to the Messiah,” Holst’s “St. Paul’s Suite,” Respighi’s “Ancient Airs and Dances Suite#1” and a couple of holiday songs with local lyric soprano Jayne Skoog.
