41st Season: Fall 2014 – Spring 2015
(1974 ~ 2015)
A Choral Society in Burlington, North Carolina singing the music you love!
“Our Lincoln Center concert was all I had hoped. The choir of 217 came perfectly ready to sing OUR FATHER and we had plenty of time to truly interpret and dramatize the music. A couple of the DCINY staff said, “Wow, they sure are a HAPPY group.” In the last segment of a long rehearsal, I said we would sing the entire cantata all the way through. I winced when I heard a collective sigh until I realized they were excited to do so. What a gift to the composer!
Here is a rehearsal pic taken by Iris Gross Derke.”

“The Alamance Chorale was invited by the Distinguished Concerts International New York City to perform an original piece, “Our Father: A Journey Through the Lord’s Prayer,” by Pepper Choplin of Raleigh. They were joined onstage by performers from choirs and churches from across North Carolina, numbering more than 200 singers total, as well as DCINY’s 40-piece professional orchestra.
The Chorale spent five days and four nights in New York preparing for the concert. Members traveled on their own by car, airplane or bus.”

Alamance Chorale: 2014-2015 Season
Organized in 1974, The Alamance Chorale celebrates its 41st year of singing and fellowship in the Burlington-Alamance community. The Chorale specializes in sacred and classical music, but its repertoire includes selections from Broadway musicals and popular composers, traditional folk songs, spirituals and madrigals. Membership in The Alamance Chorale is open to anyone who enjoys singing choral music. The goal of The Chorale is “to provide music appreciation as well as music education to the citizens of Alamance County and surrounding areas.” In the spring the Chorale produces a dinner show as a fundraiser. Chorale members plan, prepare and serve a formal dinner in a lovely and gracious atmosphere of fine dining and then entertain their audience with a variety of light and easy-listening music.
