From the combined chorus Messiah Concert at St. Mark's in Harlem, the Chorus rushed to Little Italy in the Bronx for its second concert of the day, featuring the great Bach Magnificat.

The concert took place at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel off Arthur Avenue in the midst some of the greatest restaurants and shops west of Naples Italy.
