With the start of the new season on September 11, 2023, the Northeast Piedmont Chorale begins its 37th year performing free concerts for audiences from Raleigh to Henderson.
Over the past 37 years, the Chorale has continued to attract new members and larger audiences. This year, the Chorale is beginning the new season with 86 members, the highest membership in the history of the Chorale. These 86 committed members are both trained and amateur musicians who love to sing and perform together, and they are very excited about beginning a new season.
In December, the Chorale will perform two holiday concerts. “Sounds of the Season” will feature music genres ranging from classical to calypso. Each concert will begin with Vivaldi’s Gloria and end with A Musicological Journey Through the Twelve Days of Christmas by Craig Courtney. In between, our audiences will be delighted with a variety of holiday music. In another first, the Chorale will learn to sing Yoruba, the language of Nigeria, in the rhythmically beautiful song, Betelehemu by Olatunji and Whalum. There will be something for everyone in our holiday concerts, so mark your calendars and begin the holiday season with the Northeast Piedmont Chorale!
