The 75-member Chorale is led by Cindy Edwards. A nine-member orchestra will accompany the singers. The group is accompanied on piano by Kristen Allred.

In addition to the masterwork “Te Deum” by Dan Forrest, the program will feature familiar classics such as “City of Stars” from the movie La La Land and a mesmerizing version of the lullaby “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”; a sea chanty, “Sea Fever”; a spiritual, “Wade in the Water”; and a powerful rendition of “The Impossible Dream” from the Broadway production of Man of La Mancha, in addition to another half dozen selections. Two of the songs, “Alleluia for Our Time” and “City of Stars,” are arrangements by Raleigh composer Jay Althouse.

“These concerts explore the wonderment of the creation, from earth and sea to sun and sky,” said Judy Miller of Youngsville, the president of the Northeast Piedmont Chorale board of directors. “We celebrate the seas, rejoice in the sunlight, and sing the songs of the stars. We always strive to present a variety of musical selections that will enlighten and entertain concert goers, and this Spring’s program promises to be among our very best.”

The Chorale is a non-profit, non-sectarian, volunteer organization whose mission is to perform final choral music for the residents of the Northeast Piedmont area at no charge. Members of the Chorale come from Wake, Durham, Vance and Franklin counties.

The Chorale is constantly looking to expand.
