Announcing - 2023-2024 Season:
The Lexington Chamber Chorale
Performing Hallelujah from Gospel Mass
The Lexington Chamber Chorale brings a rich and unique choral repertoire to Central Kentucky audiences. Since its humble beginning as the Sine Nomine Singers, the Chorale has enjoyed celebrating the art of choral singing through performing interesting and challenging pieces of music. Chamber Chorale concerts also enrich our cultural community through creative collaborations with guest artists and musicians. The passion for singing and the continued pursuit of musical excellence inspire the singers to present quality programs that touch both mind and spirit.
A Chamber Chorale with a Passion for Singing
Kentucky Bluegrass meets the Italian Renaissance and Swedish contemporary music in the Chorale’s season opening concert, Miniature MASSterpieces. This concert pairs Palestrina’s traditional Italian Renaissance mass, Missa Brevis (1570), with Swedish composer Eskil Hemberg’s lyrical and literature-inspired Messa d’oggi (1972). These miniature masses themselves set the stage for Carol Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass (2006), an exhilarating blend of the classical mass, insightful poetry, and traditional bluegrass instrumentation.
Welcome the holiday season with our concert of both new and familiar tunes with fresh arrangements. Featuring an audience favorite carol sing-a-long, Sing Noel is the perfect concert to celebrate the season with the whole family.
Miniature Masterpieces II
From Renaissance Italy to the English-speaking 20th century comes the Chorale’s second Miniature Masterpieces concert. American composer Morten Lauridsen’s light-filled requiem Lux Aeterna opens the program featuring the talents of the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra. The Chorale continues with English composer Ralph Vaughn Williams’ beautiful Serenade to Music, featuring the solo voices of the Chorale and accompanist Cully Bell.
Past and Present Miniature Masterpieces III
Kentucky’s composers and poets of past and present populate the Chorale’s final season concert, Past and Present Miniature Masterpieces III. This concert of spoken word and song pays tribute to the musical and literary history of Kentucky with an eye on its present and future. This free concert at Ashland concludes with a preview of our 2024-2025 season.
