In Memoriam - Bill Crosby


The Metropolitan Choral Festival received news on Sunday morning, August 27, 2023 (just hours after our concert), that founding member, gracious benefactor, and dear friend, William Crosby passed away peacefully.


Bill loved the MCF -- singing for as many years as he was able, attending the concerts in person or via live stream, and generously supporting the organization financially. Bill was known for his wonderfully kind spirit, his joy for life, his love and care for the people around him, and his beautiful bass voice. He will be dearly missed on this earth. 


Bill, we hope the Requiems we sang in the hours before you passed provided peace and joy for your journey, but will also bring peace, joy and comfort to those of us who knew and loved you.

May love and deep peace surround Bill's family and friends in this time.

What People Are Saying


[The concert] was fantastic. Dan Forrest was lovely, the soloists were great. It was all together a wonderful evening. Stay with [MCF] as long as you are able...they're super. You are truly blessed to have such a wonderful group to belong to...BRAVO."



We had TWO standing ovations, and some of my friends said they wept during the Requiem because it was so moving. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this experience.



We were totally wowed by the MCF concert this past Saturday evening.  I am so glad we experienced it in person rather than live-streaming as we did last year.  I felt transported to heaven. It brought tears to my eyes. 



It was a truly amazing evening of beautiful music. So thankful to have been part of this group this summer! Ricki makes it fun in spite of the challenging works presented. 



Surrounded by love and music in an evening that was extraordinarily musical and loving. Thank you Ricki Vorrath-Moyer, you are a goddess of the conductor's podium.
