Our 24th Season

The Lexington Chamber Chorale presents three featured concerts for our 24th season along with two collaborative programs.We begin our 24th season with powerful, beautiful, and sometimes chilling music of war and peace. This concert will be followed by the Messiah, as the Chorale joins the Lexington Philharmonic for a fifth performance of the work. Our annual Christmas concert will include a sing-along and be followed by a reception with delicious treats and a raffle. The Chorale will finish the season with two collaborative concerts. The first, a celebration of music and dance with Lexington Vintage Dance, and then we will celebrate Shakespeare along with SCAPA/Lafayette Theatre program and professional actors from the Bluegrass.

The 24th Season Concert Series

Music of War and Peace
Saturday, November 1, 7:30 p.m.

Music is often associated with war and peace. From the Crusades to conflicts between nations, music has been used to incite battles as well as to mourn the resultant damage and deaths. What  often follows is music based on dona nobis pacem (grant us peace).We begin our 24th season with powerful, beautiful, and sometimes chilling music of war and peace.

Cathedral of Christ the King

The Chorale joins the Lexington Philharmonic for a fifth year of this Baroque-style performance of George Frideric Handel’s great work in the beautiful Cathedral of Christ the King.

We are pleased to close our 24th season with this innovative work.
