Romance in the Air
Sat, Feb 15th, at 4:00 & 8:00pm
Celebrate your Valentine’s Day with the 16-voice Chamber Choir, Susan Lohr at the piano, plus bass and drums, as we pay homage to the great singer-songwriters of past and present. Enjoy classic hits from artists like Paul Simon, James Taylor, Carole King, Billy Joel, and Elton John as well as more recent hits from Adele, Sam Smith, and Ed Sheeran.
Tues, March 3rd, at 7:30pm
Antonín Dvořák’s monumental Requiem setting soars in the similar grand Romantic style of the settings of Verdi and Berlioz. Dvořák brings to this work a strong sense of dramatic pacing, inventive orchestration, and his own deep religious devotion. From the fire and fury of the “Dies Irae” to the tender pleas of the soloist’s “Pie Jesu”, this performance will captivate, inspire, and engage.
Barons of Broadway
Sun, March 29th, at 3:00pm
This spring, the Chorale and pit orchestra present some of the most beloved music from the American Musical Theater. You’ll hear songs from shows like Camelot, My Fair Lady, Phantom, Cats, Guys and Dolls, and more. In our second installment of Barons of Broadway, we pay homage to the compositional duo Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, Broadway legend Frank Loesser, and internationally-renowned songwriter Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Founded in 1942 as the Raleigh Oratorio Society, the North Carolina Master Chorale is committed to bringing the very finest in choral music performance to Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill audiences. Under the direction of Dr. Alfred E. Sturgis since 1993, the Chorale boasts a 170-voice Symphonic Chorus and a smaller, professional Chamber Choir whose size varies by project.
