CCS to highlight Rachmaninoff’s ‘Vespers’
Catskill Choral Society will bring a touch of old and new to its spring concert this year. The group will perform Rachmaninoff’s “Vespers” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, and at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at First United Methodist Church at 66 Chestnut St. in Oneonta.
