RCS Scholarship Auditions


Candidates for RCS's annual scholarship award will audition on Saturday, April 5.  Graduating high school seniors who have been nominated by a voice coach, vocal teacher, or choral director have applied and will be interviewed and auditioned.  The winner will perform and receive a cash award, which will be presented at the RCS Spring Concert, "The Spirit Sings." 


RCS recognizes the importance of encouraging young Staten Islanders, who are already active in singing in their schools, to continue their interest at the next level.  To this end, we have awarded vocal scholarships, up to $1000, to high school seniors for the past fourteen years. 


RCS is proud to encourage and showcase these talented young people.

Richmond Choral Society met the NY Knicks on Sunday, January 27

Who says a community chorus has to be stodgy?  The folks at Madison Square Garden gave us a chance to disspell the myth when they asked us to be a part of Staten Island Night at the Garden.  RCS sang the National Anthem to open the NY Knicks game on Sunday, January 27, 2013.  They must have gone to commercial on ESPN and MSG, so we didn't make it on national television, but we did sing live for an audience of 18,000!  So, just for the record, check out our YouTube below.
