Ridgewood NJ, The New Jersey Choral Society is unique among the many choral groups in NJ and we pride ourselves on promoting our younger singers. One such member is Wen Wen Vanderwende, now a first year student at the University of Hartford in Connecticut. This past spring, she won the Harmonium Composition Contest for 2019 with her piece entitled “Hymn to Venus.” She said that this past season’s study of 20th century music with Song of the Angels and Poulenc’s Stabat Mater influenced hercomposition.
