In the Parish House of the New Utrecht Reformed Church, in Bensonhurst, the Conservatory of Music of Brooklyn College Chamber Choir performed under the direction of Jonathan P. Babcock in the first of a series of free public concerts arranged by the Friends of Historic New Utrecht. Choral selections ranged from music that pre-dated the historic church's founding in 1677 to classical selections from the early 1500s, the works of Maurice Ravel, British folk songs and international love songs in a program entitled "Love Songs and Folk Tales." The concert series is supported, in part, by public funds from the NYC department of Cultural Affairs, the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development and the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
