Performers in FREO’s Victorian Carol Sing-Along are sponsored in part with a grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Creative Engagement program (LMCC,) The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) in partnership with the City Council, The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and The New York State Legislature. The concert is part of FREO’s “Erben Renewal Concerts” series, which explores historic repertoire heard here in the 19th century, with the magnificent 1868 Henry Erben organ often alongside the choir and instrumentalists. It is a fitting way to celebrate the instrument before it heads off for its historic restoration, due to begin in February 2024.
