NPC ‘Rejoices’ with two great performances!
Holiday spirit was in abundance as the Northeast Piedmont Chorale performed for enthusiastic and warm audiences in Wake Forest and Henderson for our Fall concert season on Dec. 16-17, 2022. The “Rejoice!” concerts were the first Fall events for the Chorale since our December 2019 concerts.
The Covid pandemic sidelined the Chorale for nearly two years starting in March 2020 before a return to rehearsals in February 2022 and concerts last Spring.
The Friday evening concert was held at Wake Forest Baptist Church in Wake Forest while the Saturday event was at McGregor Hall Performing Arts Center in Henderson. A 72-voice Chorale, the largest in its history, performed with a 16-piece orchestra at both venues and were treated to standing ovations from the audiences. The NPC also has experienced strong financial support from audiences, businesses and individuals since returning.
The focus shifts now to the next Spring series with rehearsals starting Monday, Jan. 9, 2023, in the Fellowship Hall of Wake Forest Baptist Church at 107 E. South Avenue in Wake Forest. Rehearsals are held each Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. Want to sing with us?
