The Music of New West

Celebrate the Joy and Wonder of Christmas with New West

JUST RELEASED!  You definitely won’t want to miss our new Christmas, out just in time for all to enjoy all season long.  Christmas with New West: Live at the Jack! features New West Symphony & Chorus and New West Student Ensemble performing beautiful arrangements of some of the world’s most beloved Christmas songs:  O Come All Ye Faithful, Silent Night, The First Noel, Mary Did you Know? and Joy to the World.  We’re sure there are many other songs on our album that will soon become a regular part of your Christmas-listening repertoire, including Christ is Born, Glow, The Bells, All on a Starry Night and O Magnum Mysterium.  All of these songs, and a few more, were recorded live at the magnificent Jack Singer Concert Hall at our 2019 and 2021 Christmas with New West concerts.

Our CD is on its way, and will be available for purchase at our December Christmas concerts.  If you can’t make it to those concerts, email us and we’ll figure out how to get you a copy of the CD.

Good news: Christmas with New West: Live at the Jack! is also available TODAY for purchase on iTunes!

Thank you for allowing New West be a part of your Christmas celebration and contemplation.

In the summer and fall of 2020, in spite of the restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, New West Symphony & Chorus continued to make music together… virtually.  Be encouraged as you listen.

Come to the Mountain

Do you need some encouragement today?  New West Society wants to remind you that God is approachable and is available for each one us to approach Him.  In fact, we can do so at any time, in any circumstance… just as we are.   This amazing song of encouragement is Come to the Mountain, directed by Henric Ideström and recorded/mixed by Jerry Proppe.

We Are Not Alone

New West Society, as you can imagine, paused our season due to the COVID-19 epidemic.  We, like so many other groups, came together virtually to maintain community, and to support each other through encouragement and prayer.

Directed by Henric Ideström, members and alumni from New West Symphony & Chorus and SymphoNYChorus came together virtually to bless people with the important reminder that We Are Not Alone.  We were blessed to still be able to connect with family, friends, and our music community during this time.  We continue to be blessed by the fact that God, in His compassion and care, is always with us.

A special thanks to Jerry Proppe for his hard work in putting this together!

The First Noel

To celebrate the wonder of Christmas, members of New West Society created a virtual recording of The First Noel, directed by Henric Ideström and mixed by Jerry Proppe.  Regardless of what this unique Christmas season holds for you, may you find comfort and joy in celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
