NPC preparing for start of Fall, Spring seasons

The Northeast Piedmont Chorale has turned its attention to preparation for the Fall and Spring singing seasons for 2023-24.

Rehearsals are starting in early September, and those who love to sing are invited to join us.

Rehearsals for the Fall semester will begin Monday, September 11, 2023, in the Fellowship Hall at Wake Forest Baptist Church, 107 E. South Avenue in Wake Forest, NC. Rehearsals take place each Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. Rehearsals for Spring will begin on Monday, January 15, 2024.

“Sounds of the Season” is the theme for Fall as the Chorale presents a program of holiday classics and treats on Friday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 9. The Friday concert will be held at Wake Forest Baptist Church, 107 E. South Avenue, Wake Forest, NC, and the Saturday concert will be held at New Hope Baptist Church, 4301 Louisburg Road, in Raleigh, NC. Both concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Spring 2024 concerts are scheduled for May 3-4, 2024.

The NPC’s Spring 2023 concerts – with the theme of “What a Wonderment” – were well received by enthusiastic audiences in Raleigh and Henderson this past April. Highlights of the program were the masterwork “Te Deum” by Dan Forrest, two arrangements by Raleigh composer Jay Althouse, a lullaby, a sea chanty, a spiritual, and a powerful rendition of “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha, among a variety of selections.

The Chorale is a non-profit, non-sectarian, volunteer organization whose mission is to perform fine 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. Cindy Edwards is the director of the chorale, and the group is accompanied on piano by Kristen Allred. Performances also feature orchestra accompaniment.

The NPC is constantly looking to expand, and, in particular, is looking for additional tenor and bass singers. If you enjoy singing a wide variety of music genres and would be interested in singing with the Chorale for the upcoming season, please contact the director at Look for membership information by clicking on the “Join Now” button at the bottom of the home page of this website at After receiving your membership request, our director will contact you either by phone or email.
