It’s the oldest performing cultural organization in Queens — founded in 1927 before the 7 train was completed — and its members have sung in countless churches, synagogues and schools throughout the borough. The Oratorio Society of Queens will perform a holiday concert at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center on Sunday. This group, which features a 125-plus-member chorus under the direction of 40-year veteran Maestro David Close, will come alive with appropriate portions of Handel’s Messiah along with a healthy amount of Christmas and Hanukkah favorites by the chorus, soloists and special guests.
